It's clear that Japan has had, and continues to have, many problems in this area. And that's precisely why authors like Chizuko Ueno have much to contribute on the subject, and why their work is so influential.

If there were no/few problems in Japan, such authors would have little to write about.

I'm guessing you have never read any of Ms. Ueno's books.

In fact, it's probably safe to say you've never read any feminist literature.
