Justin McCurry “Nearly a third of Japan's women 'sexually harassed at work'” http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/02/japan-women-sexually-harassed-at-work-report-finds
A health ministry survey last year found that almost 50% of women sent to corporate clients by temp agencies encountered victimisation ranging from dismissal and demotion to unfair treatment and verbal abuse.
The survey found that just over a fifth of full-time employees were also subjected to “maternity harassment”*2 .
Japan performs poorly in international gender equality comparisons. In the World Economic Forum’s 2015 global gender gap index, it ranked 101st out of 145 countries*3.
