America’s history of female entry into the labor force seems perfectly comprehensible to me. Japan’s (decline in percentage of the labor force female from 1968 to 1976?) isn’t. The recent acceleration is certainly curious. What are those women not in the labor force doing? Not raising children, certainly; Japan has one of the lowest birthrates in the world.
