This chapter sums up the study by first highlighting the findings and overall arguments presented in the previous chapters. Then, it describes changes in women's employment opportunities since the mid-1990s using more recent survey data. It assesses whether a further divergence or a future convergence can be expected between Japan and Taiwan by evaluating recent policy changes and their implications for gender inequality in the workplace. It pays attention to how broader economic shifts, resulting from the slowdown of both economies since the late 1990s, may transform workplaces and gender inequality in the years to come. This chapter ends with a discussion of this study's general implications for understanding the different paces at which the economic gender gaps close across the industrialized world.
