In Japan, One Size Does Not Fit All Women

A typical attire when it comes to job hunting for women in Japan

If I were to dress differently from everyone, I’d worry that companies wouldn’t take me seriously

This is just one example of Japanese society’s expectations and pressure on women to conform to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ standard of appearance. I took the opportunity to use the recruit suits as a topic for discussion. The …continue reading
