    Japan's track record for shattering the glass ceiling for working women is a short one. But on Thursday, another crack was made when a female was named head coach for the first time in Japan's professional basketball league.

    Which female athletes have shown an ability to play with the boys?

    The Saitama Broncos said they promoted Natalie Nakase to head coach from assistant, making the California native the first woman to head a team in Japan's professional basketball league. The 31-year-old replaces Dean Murray, who was abruptly suspended earlier this week and then fired for violating his contract. A team spokeswoman declined to comment on the specifics of the breach.

    well this is a step in the right direction..i wonder why some countries encourage women to excel and others treat them like property still?
