 Professor Akiko Murata (Director, Gender Studies Institute, Waseda University), Waseda University Faculty of Letters, said, "In front of this survey, it is doubtful that Japanese society really welcomes children while considering the declining birthrate and aging population. Looking at the high rate of concern about "Matahara, Ikuhara", we value the essence of human society, which treats women as equal partners and supports each life event, and children. I even feel that the maturity of the society to grow up has declined. "(Partial excerpt).
