Japan’s female bosses mapping a course for other women

Kathy Matsui leads one such firm, MPower Partners, which she recently started in Tokyo with two female partners, Yumiko Murakami and Seki Miwa. A former vice chair of investment bank Goldman Sachs Japan, Ms Matsui is best known for her “womenomics” drive since the 1990s, which has encouraged the Japanese government to improve its gender ratio among businesses.
