Abstract
This study aims to compare the different welfare provisions in the form of parental leave benefits and entitlements, and their effect on FLFP in Sweden and Japan. Evidence of a welfare based glass ceiling in the case of Sweden, and a glass ceiling, based on the lack of family welfare in Japan, is found. However Swedish women’s position on the labor market is stronger, when compared to Japanese women.
