For the first time in the history of Japan
For the first time in the history of Japan's Governor appointed a woman, Yuriko Koike. Former Minister of defense of Japan, 64-year-old Bed received over a million votes more than her nearest rival, Hiroya Masuda, who was supported by the ruling liberal democratic party of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The bed is one of three women currently serving as Governor of one of 47 prefectures of the country. In his campaign Bed refers to Joan of arc, and the anime character Sally, and promises to overcome the shortage in child care and to encourage women to have friendly policy" so that women and men can develop in Tokyo."

Japanese society still largely dominated by men in politics and in business. The world economic forum ranks 101st in the line 145 from the point of view of equality between men and women, and only 9.5% of the house of representatives of Japan's women, in accordance with the inter-Parliamentary Union.

The status of women at the top of Japanese society are also under question in recent years. Existing laws do not allow a woman to accede to the chrysanthemum Throne. Princess Aiko would be second in line to the throne after her father crown Prince of Naruhito leave his post. If the law is changed, the throne will pass to uncle Aiko Prince Akishino.

A graduate of Cairo University, Koike is fluent in Arabic and English, and she also worked as a translator and speaker before entering politics. Outspoken and overconfident, she is a frequent commentator on Japanese and global channels. In recent months, she praised the newly elected President of Taiwan Tsai ing-Wen and warned about Donald trump as "the man who will inflict long-term damage" to U.S. relations-Japan.

In 2005, she first adopted the programme of promotion of male employees in suits in the summer, allowing you to set in the offices air conditioning. Koike also contributed to the introduction of a tax on carbon emissions and using a Japanese wrapping cloth - bags instead of plastic. As Governor of Tokyo, Koike will oversee the preparation of the summer Olympic games held in 2020.
