Discussion: Changing family and gender roles in Japan

For example, now more than 60 % of the people in Japan welcome same-sex marriage, and less people are planning on having children. The topic is discussed with University Lecturer of Asian Studies Sara Park from the University of Helsinki. In collaboration with Suomalais-Japanilainen Yhdistys ry. In English.
