In Japanese society, gender has long been a major determinant of individuals' work-career and life trajectory. Due to the complexity of this social phenomenon, Gender and Career in Japan probes the nature and ramifications of changing gender norms in Japan from a multidisciplinary perspective incorporating sociology, social psychology, and economics. The book elucidates the mutual interrelationship between the macro and micro dimensions of society and the individual, and it challenges the unfairness inherent in the association between career and gender. The specificity and universality of Japan's situation is further highlighted by comparison with its near neighbor, Korea.
