Japan PM names five women to new cabinet

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (C) arrives at his official residence in Tokyo on September 3, 2014Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe named five women to his new cabinet on Wednesday, leading by example in a country economists say must make better use of its highly-educated but underemployed women. “A society in which women shine is one of the big pillars of this government,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference ahead of the announcement. “Japan must be a place where women are given the chance to shine.” Observers say the LDP, the bastion of age-based seniority that has ruled Japan for most of the last 60 years, is crammed with lawmakers who feel they have served their time on the back benches and deserve a shot at a government job.
