'Homebody' Speech Riles Japanese Women

A Japanese economy minister recently told an international gathering of businesswomen that “Japanese women find pleasure in working at home.” Outraged women’s groups have staged protests and are calling on him to resign.

TOKYO (WOMENSENEWS)--Mariko Mitsui, a former Tokyo assembly member and advocate for women's rights, isn't ready to accept the regrets of a government official for his comments at a women's business summit here.

"Many women are upset and disgusted with his scandalous statements," she said. "He strongly wishes women should be at home. I am extremely ashamed to be Japanese that such a man still remains a vice minister in the government."



More than 300 businesswomen and other participates from the 21 member countries of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum listened on Oct. 1 as Yoshikatsu Nakayama, the ruling Democratic Party's vice minister of economy, trade and industry, repeatedly said Japanese women enjoyed staying at home and holding the power behind the throne.

"Japanese women find pleasure in working at home and that has been part of Japanese culture," Nakayama told the meeting, which was co-hosted by Japan and the United States in the central city of Gifu. "They should be given more credit through (raising their husbands') salaries, but it has become impossible as the situation surrounding men has become severe."

His quotes were printed in several Japanese newspapers, including the Mainichi, Kochi, Kitanihon and Kyodo News Agency.

それにしても、中山発言だけでなく、企業団体献金受け取り再開など、「こんなはずじゃなかった」というのが多すぎますね。
