JAUW Reports Work-Life Balance Study Results

In 2008-2009, the Japanese Association of University Women (JAUW) conducted a comparative study looking at policies that enable women and men to balance work with responsibilities related to the family. Survey responses from IFUW national affiliates offered insights into policies regarding provisions of childcare, parental leave, employment options such as flexible work hours and work-sharing. They also examined attempts to eliminate gender bias and stereotyping by promoting progressive attitudes regarding gender roles in school textbooks. The English translation of the findings is now available. See here.
