I just wanted to know. How are girls in japan treated. ☝ Not just Japanese women but, all women.
if you could tell me.
if you could tell me.
If Japanese women are being treated so badly, why don't you see more of them complaining?
orochi said:These women, exposed to communities outside of Japan come back a lot different (if they come back at all). There is also a growing "demand" for foreigner boyfriends/husbands who will treat them as equals and give them an escape out of Japan and its boundaries on women.
There's also the fact that Japanese tend to complain a lot less than other cultures. There's definitely a "grin and bear it" mindset. 我慢！我慢！
While a lot of what you say is true, I feel you are seeing it too much from a western view point.

The reason why Japanese girls want foreign boyfriends is not always that they are looking for something "better" but they have been influenced by western media - hollywood movies - and it's is fashionable to be with a tall, blonde, white man. Like a LV bag , it's all the rage

I mean, why even bring up the subject of how women are being treated in Japan--is it such an important issue?--when there are countries in Latin America where men do not get convicted for killing their wives if they caught them cheating on them, or countries in the middle east where women are not allowed to receive education and are required to wear a veil over their faces all the time, or in Africa where little girls' sexual organs are mutilated.
An example of this are foreign language TV shows. There are a wide variety, teaching English, French, Italian, Chinese, German and more to budding Japanese viewers at home. Every one of these shows has the same recipe: a native speaker from said country; an older, educated, usually male speaker of the foreign language; and the young, cute Japanese girl who just can't seem to get this new language down. They wear cute outfits and giggle and jump around. You do the math.
