Equality in Japan’s Monarchy

A succession law was brought up in the England that would allow Duchess of Cambrige’s child if born a girl, to become next in line, rather than if the Duchess had a son for her second child. A similar succession law was brought up in Japan before Prince Akishino’s son was born. Since then, the law has been pushed out and males still hold most of the power in government. There are business women that hold positions in the cabinet, but even they are rare.
