Showing the Euopean and South American dominance of the World Cup throughout

Not really. At least not yet.

In 2002, South Korea reached SF, US semis, Japan, Senegal, Mexico qualified to 2nd round

In 2006 Australia to 2nd round, Ghana and Mexico as well

In 2010, South Korea, Japan, Ghana, US, Mexico also moved on

In 2014, Costa Rica, US, Nigeria, Algeria, Mexico

in 2018, Mexico, Japan (worst in this millennium)

In other words, what has happened so far it isn’t so uncommon and unless we have a team outside of UEFA and CONMEBOL in the final, there won’t be a meaningful change.

Only with the help of a blown call

Lets assume this is correct. That doesn’t take away the fact that Spain only had 5 on target shoots for 3 of Japan, meaning their scoring chances and ability to have an efficient offensive were mediocre. If Spain did well as they did against Costa Rica or others before, this wouldn’t even be a discussion.

It was a great victory indeed. Well deserved and hardly worked.

But don’t get it wrong, German sun themselves. Lost to Mexico and South Korea in 2018, out in R16 (out of 24 teams) in Euro 2020, and with an almost full renovation in the squad.

Hope Japan does their best and qualifying to the bracket would be an accomplishment already

True, but with so few role models in the field and in management, what are the incentives for young women?

What young Japanese woman wants to go into a career dominated by men?

I recommend reading the last paragraph of my post again.

Yes, I didn't miss that. You are right, but you can't get young women to enter and advance in the field if they have no role models now. That's why this is a good move - select more women for management roles so they become the role models for the next generation.

This is not necessarily true, it can backfire badly. If the role model is you are there because of your gender and not because of your skill, it is not a good one. As initially stated, the ratio of women interested in the field is way less than men. Meaning that if by every 10 men there is one woman that studied/experienced that (speculating numbers, just and example), then the ratio of women in management should be fairly similar, otherwise can back fire badly.

That being said, what it’s required is to have a working environment and law that supports an equal validation and support of the employees

They should just strive to hire and keep the most competent managers that suits the job. If they happen to be majority women, so be it.
