Much of the justice that was delivered to the Japanese in the Forties and Fifties was not strictly reserved for the tyrants of the military - so, too, were the rights and protections that are guaranteed in the United States constitution imposed throughout the land. For the first time ever Japanese women were permitted to vote, unions were legalized and equality under the law was introduced. This article concerned the overthrow of the feudal laws that pertained to Japanese tenant farming. When these thousand-year laws had been tossed out, it gave the long-serving farmers a chance to own the land on which they worked.

Many of the laws introduced during the years of American occupation are still in effect today (Many Japanese men continue to grumble about the women voting thing).
