Barrett K.(2004). Women in the Workplace: Sexual Discrimination in Japan, Human Rights Brief. 11(2). Page 4-8. Kelly Barrett, who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Bowling Green State University in Ohio, has a Masters in Education degree from Alfred University in New York, and has a teaching experience for many years. Barrett emphasizes the history and explanations of the Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEOL) of gender biases from a sociological and cultural perspective. The author describes the history of Japanese women who experienced gender discrimination during past centuries, which was based on a research study. The article explains the background about Labor Standards Law (LSL) and the history of gender biases instead of analyzing the problems in recent years.

The author attempts to relate her point to “legal implications of the Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEOL)” and gender discrimination. She has a bias that it is hard for females to find a job in recent years. Although Barrett gives a lot of background, she does not discuss the phenomenon in recent years very much, so it is difficult to understand her ideas. However, I can use the research ideas and history background in my own paper.
