Ms. Muraki is infamous for wrongly accuse of a fraud and detained for about five months, yet proved her innocence and succeed to be the second women to serve as Vice Minister in the central government. When she joined Ministry of Labour in 1978, years before the enforcement of the Equal Employment Opportunity Law, females were in the minority (2-3%) in the ministry. She married her colleague at age 26 and gave birth to two daughters at age 29 and 35. Because the couple lived far from their homelands, they could not rely on their parents for child raring. Yet, with support from Hoikuen and others, Ms. Muraki managed to balance work and family. After retiring from Ministry of Health Labour and Welfare, she joined Tsuda University as Guest Lecturer and Itochu Corporation as Member of the Board. The event will be a rare opportunity to learn from this incredible woman with deep knowledge acquired through her dedicated work as a public servant and a working mother. Please join us!
