This paper is a further writing from the paper that author made in 2008, which explores the representation of women in the Japanese national politics system. The results obtain at that time show that women's representation in Japan's national political system is still marginal. This follow-up paper is written to see the overview about how the situation now a days, as it has been known for the last approximately 69 years since the 1947 Japanese Constitution Legalized, it guarantees women's rights including the political rights. To overcome the gender disparity, Japan has received 30% affirmative quotas. But apparently, the numbers are difficult to achieve. Japanese political culture is still a factor that is difficult to pass by women. In the political world, Japanese women are more likely to act as voters, whose movements sometimes fluctuate the national political system of Japan. This paper is written using a literature study.
