Summary

The purpose of this joint study is to review the situation of women workers in Japan and the United States, to accelerate efforts necessary for the improvement of their status, to contribute to the solution of the problem of women workers, and to promote mutual understanding and cooperation between the two countries. Divided into three sections, the first explores the problems of women workers in the United States: their status in terms of wage earning, racial balance, the job benefits, and educational qualifications; measures to benefit these workers (legislation, employment assistance, research, and organizations); and their current problems. The second section reiterates similar information for Japanese women. Each section, written by the respective governments, was reviewed and approved by both sides. The third section, "Looking to the Future," presents parallel statements by each country on eight items constituting areas in which action should be taken: broadening occupational opportunities; improving counseling, education and training of women; changing attitudes toward working women; problems of reentry into the work force; problems of women with dual responsibilities; implementation of laws prohibiting sex discrimination; reducing earning differentials between men and women; and increasing number of decision making positions for women. Appended are statistical data on women workers and related legislation for each country with explanations of surveys and terms. (FP)
