Women in Japanese Society: Their Changing Roles
The place of women in Japanese society provides an interesting blend of illusion and myth. There are two distinct Japanese societies - public and private. The popular Western image of the subservient Japanese woman is real, it is however, only an image. In their private family role, women quite often dominate the male members of the household. Judged by Western standards, the women of Japan are unusually dedicated to their families. The current position of women in Japanese society can be attributed to the vestiges of two old philosophies - Confucianism, and Samurai based feudalism. These influences are still strong, however in spite of these influences the public role of women has changed markedly since the beginning of World War II.
How the position of women in society has changed ..

In general, social position in Egypt was based,not on gender, but on social rank. On the other hand, theability to move through the social classes did exist for theEgyptians. Ideally, the same would have been true for women. However, one private letter of the New Kingdom from a husband tohis wife shows us that while a man could take his wife with him,as he moved up in rank, it would not have been unusual for such aman to divorce her and take a new wife more in keeping with hisnew and higher social status. Still, self-made women certainlydid exist in Egypt, and there are cases of women growing rich ontheir own resources through land speculation and the like.

There are various favourable ideologies related to this positional change. To start with, the position of women, which govern a society e.g., Madam Sheikh Hasina and it is a bright change of our society. Secondly, the women can also assist to govern the President or Prime minister. E.g., Madame Henry Clinton, Sarah Palin and Condoleeza Rice. Thirdly, the women could also be a good Teacher, Doctor, Games and Media Star or Scholar of a society. E.g., Lady Diana and Laura S. Brown. Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the West’s wrong perspective on the position of women in society has resulted in countless problems. Addressing a group of
