- DescriptionThis book shows how, during the period of the Japanese ecomic miracle, a distinctive female employment system was developed alongside, and different from, the better kwn Japanese employment system which was applied to male employees. Women, Work and the Japanese Ecomic Miracle describes and analyses the place of female workers in the cotton textile industry, which was a crucially important industry with a large workforce. In presenting detailed data on such key issues as recruitment systems, management practices and the working experience of the women involved, it demonstrates the importance for Japan's postwar ecomy of harnessing female labour during these years.
