Female leaders discuss “Womenomics” at the Women Political Leaders Summit 2019

Women are less likely to join the labor force because of social stereotypes and preconceived expectations. “Womenomics” is the term Japan adopted to refer to policies aimed at increasing women’s participation in the labor market. Leaders including Tomoko Abe, Member of the House of Representatives of Japan; Mody Al Khalaf, Member of Parliament of Saudi Arabia; and Canan Kalsin participated in a panel moderated by Sarah Birke, Tokyo Bureau Chief at The Economist, to discuss the issue.
