Do more to ban gender bias, U.N. panel urges

A U.N. committee is recommending that the Japanese government immediately implement remedial measures to eradicate (全滅させる、撲滅する) discrimination against women.

Japan's efforts to implement antidiscrimination measures as a party to the international convention against such discrimination are "insufficient," the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women said.

It said Tokyo has failed to address problems affecting women that the committee identified in a 2003 report. It listed discriminatory provisions (規定、条項) in the Civil Code (民法), unequal treatment of women in the labor market and low representation of women in high-level elected bodies.

In a new report, the committee said it "regrets" these issues have been left unresolved and urged Japan to "make every effort" to remedy the situation.

On the Civil Code, the committee urged Japan to abolish (廃止する) a six-month waiting period required for women but not men before remarriage and to adopt a system allowing for the choice of surnames for married couples. The panel committee called on (要求する) Japan to repeal (廃止する、無効にする) Civil Code and family registration law provisions that discriminate against children born out of wedlock (結婚生活、結婚している状態).

The latest report accuses Japan of making light of the fact that the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women is binding (拘束力のある).

Japan should recognize the convention as "the most pertinent (適切な、妥当な), broad and legally binding international instrument in the sphere of the elimination against women," the report says, urging the country to take "immediate measures" so the convention will become fully applicable (適用できる) in the legal system.

やはりアメリカと比べると
日本はまだ女性の社会進出に対して寛容でない気がします。
私の通っていた大学も女性教授の数の方が多かったかもしれません。
