Gender Equality and Women's Employment

(p.69) Chapter 4 Gender Equality and Women's Employment
Refugees, Women, and Weapons
Stanford University Press

This chapter, which examines women's employment and Japan's adoption of the Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), explains that unlike the Refugee Convention, the CEDAW was not only adopted but was progressively institutionalized, and that a medium degree of compliance has been achieved. It highlights the role of organized domestic advocates in pushing the government to ratify even controversial treaties and in demanding higher levels of compliance through litigation, lobbying international organizations, and advocating for revisions in the Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEOL).

Keywords:   women's employment, Japan, CEDAW, compliance, domestic advocates, litigation, lobbying, EEOL
