Japan has been described as the most misogynist developed country.
You can read about that with a few google swipes.

I work in big pharma Europe development and my experience is that women are still discriminated against nowadays. Most of our leaders live in a traditional family setting with the wife working part-time or not at all, and supporting gender equality is considered a necessary evil and made fun of as soon as discussed informally.
