Gender, guilt, and work-life balance

A recent IMF working paper found out that Japan’s voluntary lockdown in April was more costly for women than men. The analysis solidified the observation that women face greater responsibility and #guilt for “neither being the ideal mother nor the ideal employee”.

Yoshihide Suga wins the LDP leadership Election.

Succeeding PM Shinzo Abe

Yesterday (September 14), Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga enjoyed a land sliding victory, winning 70% of the overall eligible votes for the LDP leadership election. Key messages are: 1. His victory was obvious even before the election as the major factions had expressed their support to him. 2. Fumio Kishida managed to stay in the race for the next year’s full-fledged leadership election. He could only obtain support from a small portion of regional votes. 3. Shigeru Ishiba came last. His popularity among the public is his strong point. However, he lost 16 percentage points from the regional chapters compared to 2018. He could not garner a big support from Diet members outside his faction.

KAS Japan Weekly Covid-19 Update

Next week, Yoshihide Suga will formally be Abe’s successor. What are the factors that LDP Diet members opt for Suga? Key messages include: 1. LDP Diet members have sought for continuity though the majority of general public until August disapproved Abe or GOJ’s responses to COVID19. 2. Factions one after another supported Suga, they couldn’t miss the bus. 3. Kishida’s weak leadership was centrifugal factor, instead gave impetus to Suga. 4. Skipping general LDP members all over the country is a big disadvantage for Ishiba. LDP factions get attempted to hold on to the winning horse. 5. Suga’s appointment to be as PM seems ironic for his belief that party factions’ role had long gone.
