Now in Japan,most of women have to choose to become a housewife after they get married.They have to face their children and do the cleaning everyday.They have no chance to make a difference again and family will be what they only have.And I know the situation in many other asian countries is similar,like Korea.I don't think it's fair to women and we really should do something to change it.Now I want to know your opinion.Do you agree with me?If you don't agree with me,please tell me why.

Hey there Mizuki, I dunno about Japan but generally around the world women are getting more and more involved with a lot of things and are definitely moving forward. I saw this video on YOuTube about 'submissive Japanese women'. It gave an impression that Japanese women are submissive and are easily dominated. I think if women in Japan or Korea that are treated lower than men want to do stop this, then a collective effort among the women there should be done and it is gonna take a lot of time and effort because it will be hard to convince men in that country that women are equal to them.

well ina way it is alright but it should not be imposed. who is to take care of the kids. they can not move around like cats and dogs. they have to be educated and properly taken care of. so that they are well off when you need them in your old age!! well here in india this has created lot of problem with working women . suppose they have an office of 10-6. they have to leave at 8 and reach home at 8. after 12 hours of say being outside what is their contribution towards the family? who will cook , clean and take care of the elderly in the family? and the kids their education , food , health. the burden has fallen on grand parents. and it is too difficult and if something goes wrong with your own child in such a situation you will now blame your in laws!!! i personally feel that the new arrangement that your govt. has proposed is better in the long run..

Hi,I'm an Asian, and over here,we are not forced to become housewives; rather it's our choice. Sometimes we can't find anyone to take care of the children - I don't trust the education and caring of children to maids- so we either have to send the kids to child-care or take care of them ourselves. As it is, the companies here do not have inhouse care centers for mothers to place their children, while they work. So it's our choice to continue working or be a housewife. Anyway, it's not the end once you become a housewife. There are so many things a housewife can learn and do. My sister is a full-time housewife, and she seems to know more about the world than me. True, I know about corporate stuff - but her general knowledge - parenting, schooling, economics, business, fashion, cooking, politics - is better than mine. She learns from the internet, her group of housewife friends & their husbands, her children...
