FEATURE: Japanese Youths Speak Up for Gender Equality

   By Aya Takino
   Tokyo, Sept. 24 (Jiji Press)---Ayano Sakurai believes that the Japanese government's policy on gender equality needs more feedback from people of her generation who face wide-ranging gender-related challenges in their daily lives.
   Sakurai, 25, saw an opportunity when the government solicited public comments on a draft of basic ideas for its forthcoming basic plan on promoting gender equality.
   As the leader of a group of people under the age 30, she launched a project dubbed "#WhatU30askforGenderEquality" to encourage young people via social media and other platform to make public comments on the draft.
   "I wanted to let young people know that they can call for changes they want to see" in the next five years or so, Sakurai said.
