Chapter Summary

These days, it is no longer rare for women to work on an equal footing with men even in Japan. In the author's husband's company women went on business trips abroad or were given overseas assignments. In fact, people are sent anywhere in the world regardless of gender. The company even had an in-house nursery. She used to work for that company herself twenty-five years ago, so the change surprised her even more. The unwritten rule about marriage seemed to have existed until the company officially announced its abolition fifteen years later. Some women of her generation who had lived through the same times had continued working and are active in society today. A great change had taken place in the last twenty-five years. The author gave her heartfelt support to the women of today who are working on an equal footing with men.
