Japan's top court orders retrial in "maternity harassment" case

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Supreme Court on Thursday ordered a retrial for a woman who sued a former employer over a demotion during her pregnancy, handing down a partial victory that could encourage others to come forward. The case was the first of its kind to make it to Japan's highest court, amid efforts by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government to boost the role of women in the economy. The Supreme Court invalidated a ruling in favour of the former employer, made by a high court in Hiroshima in western Japan. #Economy #United States #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

Brazil's Lula back campaigning for Rousseff - and maybe himself

BELO HORIZONTE Brazil (Reuters) - He remains the one true rock star of Brazilian politics, introduced to an adoring crowd of thousands over the weekend as "our eternal president." Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, 68, is back on the campaign trail after a brief hiatus, hoping that a burst of his signature charisma and rapport with the poor will be enough to push his chosen successor, President Dilma Rousseff, to a re-election victory in a closely fought runoff vote on Sunday. The emcee's introduction at a rally in Belo Horizonte on Saturday also touched, intentionally or not, on an intriguing subplot - whether Lula, who oversaw an economic boom as president from 2003 to 2010, is laying the groundwork for his own return as a candidate in 2018 #Economy #facebook #India #Japan #Technology #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #brazilian

Bill Gates is wrong, the rich-poor divide is only getting wider

The former Microsoft bosss faith in the system that gave him all the money he now spends to fight inequality is perhaps instinctive. But there is ample evidence now that inequality is inbuilt in the capitalist system. #Economy #ToTheContrary #Poverty #Bill Gates #poor
