Japanese politician brings baby: Japanese politician has stirred debate after she was forbidden from bringing her baby into a council session. Wednesday’s incident was the first time Ms Ogata had attended a municipal assembly plenary session since giving birth to her son seven months ago. Yuka Ogata said she wanted to show how difficult it is for women to juggle careers and raise children. According to reports, she had asked the secretariat repeatedly to either allow her son to be with her during the assemblies or to provide a day-care facility.After a lengthy discussion, Ms Ogata left the child with a friend and the session started 40 minutes late. “Under the rules, only politicians, staff members and city officials can go on to the assembly floor,” an official at Kumamoto City Assembly told AFP on Friday. The council says it will discuss her case and ways to support lawmakers with young children. Her move has sparked debate online with supporters saying she was brave and opponents questioning if it was a good idea to bring a baby to a workplace.
