1. Akiyoshi, Mito. "Women Are Women Are Women? : The Effects of Tertiary Education on Japanese Women’s Employment Status and Career Aspirations" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, TBA, New York, New York City, Aug 11, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-12-08 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p183943_index.html>

Abstract: Statistics indicate a wide gap in educational attainment between men and women in Japan, particularly in comparison with other industrialized countries.
Data supports that in Japan, women who settle on a "pink-collar" career often attain higher economic standing through marriage than those who accept a traditionally male-dominated professional job. There exists a perception that investment in human capital is not a rational choice for women given the persistent gender inequality in the labor market. But the picture of gender-imbalanced educational participation has been changing over the past few decades. The college enrollment rate for women doubled between 1992 and 2004 from 17% to 35%. What are the implications of the increase of college-educated women for labor relations? How do female workers with tertiary education differ from their colleagues with high-school diploma or less? Using a high-quality dataset collected by the Japanese government, the present study finds that women with college education differ markedly from women with lower educational attainment in their employment status and career aspirations. At the same time, the present study also finds that the effects of variables that have been associated with women's lower labor market participation rates are present for college-educated women as well.

In 2008, CEDAW joined the other treaty bodies in Geneva.

Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: The narratives of Mattie J. Jackson, Elizabeth Keckley, Louisa Picquet, and Eliza Potter, all set in major U. S. cities, demonstrate Black women as agents of their own labor, exploiting urban spaces that afforded interactions with multiple clients, employers, and slaveowners, interactions that yielded freedom, agency, and economic sustenance. Of equal importance, these narratives document relations between Black and white women in the urban cultural landscape where Black women’s labor commands white women’s wealth, sometimes their respect but rarely their regard as equals. This presentation exposes the complex exchange and the machinations Black women performed to succeed in these environments.
