Abstract (Summary)

Japan is facing a demographic crisis unforeseen in the history of this country—a precipitously dropping birth rate over the past 30 years that threatens the fabric and functioning of long-established Japanese employment and business practices. This study addresses a developing phenomenon that appears to be addressing this situation while simultaneously affecting societal opinions and values concerning working Japanese women. The study was based on both Japanese government and nongovernmental statistical data as well as primary data drawn from surveys of Japanese female students studying in the United States taken in 1994 and 2010. The results of both the secondary data analysis and the primary data analysis indicates significant modifications to the Japanese employment system are in progress and that there is a corresponding positive shift in Japanese societal attitudes toward working women.
