The Equal Employment Opportunity Law and labor force behavior of women in Japan
Journal of the Japanese and International Economies, 2011, vol. 25, issue 1, 39-55
This study uses repeated cross-sectional data to investigate the impact of the Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEOL) for men and women enacted in 1986 on labor force behavior of women. I find that regular employment among women, examined separately by education and marital status, did not increase after the enactment of the EEOL. Cohorts of women who graduated from university after the EEOL married later or were less likely to marry than previous cohorts.
