The World Economic Forum released its Gender Gap Report for 2013, stating Japan ranked 105 out of 136 countries and South Korea rated even worse at 111. Key reasons for these results, in both countries, are the massive overall wage gap and the lack of provisions and incentives for women with parenting responsibilities to return to work after giving birth. While South Korea increasingly allocates its budget to address the problems, Japan has yet to catch up, suffering a brain drain of talented women.
