Too Few Women at the Top: The Persistence of Inequality in Japan (英語) ハードカバー – 2016/8/30
A closely analyzed, thoroughly researched, and well-written study.... I thank Nemoto for what is in fact a powerful feminist critique of Japanese corporate culture.-- "Monumenta Nipponica"
Overall, this is a well-researched and engaging book that focuses on an important social problem. The author offers rich qualitative data and uncovers the economic and social mechanisms through which gender inequality is reinforced and reproduced in everyday life. She points to structural problems in Japanese firms such as seniority-based hiring and promotions instead of performance-based hiring and promotions, cultural biases among male and female workers based on gender stereotypes, lack of governmental programs to enable work-family responsibilities for workers, and limited legal options for workers who face discrimination in the workplace. It is a nuanced and comprehensive study of gender inequality in the workplace in contemporary Japan with important policy recommendations. Her in-depth interviews and clear writing style make it accessible to a wider audience. Too Few Women at the Top is a welcome addition to the literature on gender inequality and would be of interest to academics and policy makers of gender inequality in the workplace.--Yasemin Besen-Cassino, Montclair State University "American Journal of Sociology"
