The reasons are much more pragmatic and are often the result of women earning enough money to support the family and men wanting to take advantage of this opportunity to be more involved parents.

"For Japan to grow, we need to mobilise an army of female entrepreneurs" - Yoshiko Shinohara | A Voice of Our Own | Scoop.it
