...to immediately dislike Abe Shinzo:

Another [of Abe's cabinet appointments] was the education adviser, Eriko Yamatani, 56, a critic of sex education and the teaching of “excessive” equality of the sexes in schools.

The new state minister in charge of sex equality, Sanae Takaichi, 45, has opposed allowing women to have different legal family names from their husbands, a freedom women sued to win in the late 1980’s.


I believe one of the BIG reasons why Japan remains in the dark ages of gender equality is the fact that the intelligent, educated women who realise what a horrid deal they're getting either: ]
a) don't marry/have children
b) choose to live abroad in more enlightened countries
c) choose to marry (usually Western) men from more enlightened countries, or most commonly, a combinations of any of the above.

That will be all.
