Japan's first lady says

Study shows Millennials'less

husband helps with chores trusting than predecessors

Prime Minister calls
for cultural shift in
the workplace
TOKYO (AP) - Japan's first
lady says she has such a busy
schedule that sometimes it's up
to the prime minister to do the
dishes or take out the garbage.
It's the kind of flexibility that
Akie Abe says is needed for the
advancement of women in Japan.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is
pushing companies and the gov-
ernmentto hire and promote more
women to allow Japan's economy
to grow and create a society where
"women can shine." He appointed
five women to his18-member Cab-
inet on Wednesday.
Even though Akie Abe, 52,
openly refers to herself as a
member of the "opposition in the
household" on some issues her
husband favors, such as nuclear
energy, she told The Associated
Press on Thursday that she is a
H,.

big supporter of his "womenom-
ics" policyof promoting women's
advancement.
In Japan, women are under-
represented in senior-level posi-
tions in companies, government
or universities. They have long
been discriminated against in
salary and promotion in corpo-
rate Japan, and often face obsta-
cles to pursuing their careers due
to a lack of help from spouses.
Abe, the daughter of the for-
mer president of a leading Japa-
nese confectioner, Morinaga
& Co., said it's important that
society allows women enough
flexibility to work again after
child-rearing or other life events
that interrupt their professional
careers.
Her husband's ruling Liberal
Democratic Party has conserva-
tive views on gender equality,
but the first lady is a business-
woman, owns a bar in downtown
Tokyo, and supports local art-
ists and craftsmen. She is active
in organic farming and grows
5-M

rice herself in Yamaguchi, her
husband's hometown in western
Japan, and campaigns against
AIDS and discrimination against
minorities.
Next week, she will speak
at "The World Assembly for
Women in Tokyo," an interna-
tional symposium at which she
wants to show that Japanese
women are also serious about
making a society that is friend-
lier to them.
Such activities, along with
her differences with some of her
husband's views, have contrib-
uted to her image as a new breed
of first lady.
"My husband's conservative
supporters think the wife of a
prime minister should keep quiet
and support him, so for them my
speaking up is unthinkable, but
those on the other side of the
spectrum say I should speak up
even more," she said in an inter-
view at the prime minister's offi-
cial residence.
The first lady said people
tend to categorize others, like
right and left, west versus east,
"or men should be this way and
women that way," creating walls
and differences. "I want to tear
them down," she said.
Abe is often out all day, leav-
ing herself little time for house-
cleaning. The couple has chosen
to live mostly in their own home
in Tokyo, rather than the official
residence, so they don't have the
benefit of government household
staff.
She said she sometimes hears
her husband mumbling about
the house, but that he is never a
bossy husband telling her to do
things for him.
She said he does chores when
he can, including sometimes
washing the clothes.
"Sometimes he tries to move
things out of the way, but , end
up scolding him for putting
things in the wrong place. Poor
thing," she said.
Abe said women tend to work
harder than men in many parts
of the world but are not repre-
sented fairly.

Young people are
distrustful of Wall
Street, police and
government
CHICAGO (AP) - They're
often pegged as the civic-minded,
do-gooding generation. But while
they're still optimistic about their
own personal prospects, a new
study finds that today's youth are
often more skeptical of the coun-
try's institutions than the young
generations that preceded them.
The Millennials also are as
mistrusting of other people as the
gloomy "slackers" of Generation X
were 20 years ago - or even more
so.
Jean Twenge, .lead author of
the study that will be published
early this month in the online
edition of the journal Psycho-
logical Science, says the current
atmosphere - fed by the Great
Recession, mass shootings, and
everything from church sex abuse
scandals and racial strife to the
endless parade of publicly shamed
politicians, athletes and celebri-
ties - may help explain why this
young generation's trust levels hit
an all-time low in 2012, the most
recent data available.
In the mid-1970s, when baby
boomers were coming of age,
about a third of high school
seniors agreed that "most people
can be trusted."
That dropped to 18 percent in
the early 1990s for Gen Xers -
and then, in 2012, to just 16 per-
cent of Millennials.
The researchers also found that
Millennials' approval of major
institutions - from Congress and
corporations to the news media
and educational and religious
institutions - dropped more
sharply than other generations in
the decade that followed the ter-
rorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
"Young people today feel dis-
connected and alienated," says
Twenge, a psychologist and pro-
fessor at San Diego State Uni-
versity, who wrote a book on
