ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article is to review and compare female representation in the Japanese and Korean public sectors by looking at the measure of variation and the representative bureaucratic ratio. This study examines female representation not only in the national and local governments but also in the legislative and judiciary branches using a comparative perspective to provide a comprehensive picture of female employment and representation in the Korean and Japanese public sectors. Both in Japan and Korea, the representation of women in many public sectors has been increasing over time, but there are substantial regional and organizational variations in the level of women's representation within each country.
