(Examining Womenomics: Comparing Taiwan and Japan, Part 2)
Examining Womenomics: Comparing Taiwan and Japan was a public seminar, held at GTI on December 21, 2016, focused on the “womenomic” policies of Taiwan and Japan, and the impact of women on their economies. Womenomics, the term coined by Goldman Sachs strategist Kathy Matsui in 1999, refers to a holistic approach to increasing female participation in the workforce and encompasses policy reforms at the governmental, private, and social levels. We were joined by Abigail Friedman, long-time diplomat and CEO and Founder of The Wisteria Group; Shihoko Goto, Senior Associate for the Northeast Asia Program at The Wilson Center; and Gloria Kuo, a Political Division Officer at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO) in the United States. The panel was moderated by GTI Research Manager Melissa Newcomb.
