gi oss norsk fisk og likestilling
Japanske kvinner føder få barn,for få, i følge politikerne. derfor er de blitt opptatt av likestilling. de ser at Norge har klart det kunststykke både å holde fødselsratene oppe og å ha en stor andel av kvinnene i arbeidsmarkedet. Norge er veldig godt kjent for sin likestillingspolitikk i Japan

Explanation:
.. give us Norwegian fish and equality. Japanese women have few children; too few, according to the politicians. Therefore equality was advocated. They see that Norway has clearly the trick both of keeping birth rates up and of having a large share of women in the workplace. Norway is very well known for its politics of equality in Japan.

disagree  Daniel Dale: Respondent misunderstood the use of "klart" in this context. It means "managed" here - as in "å klare"- not "clearly."

...but seriously:


Explanation:
Give Us Norwegian Fish and Equality

Japanese women give birth to few children. Too few, according to politicians who have become concerned with equality. They see that Norway has managed the tricky task of both keeping the birthrates up and having a large proportion of women in the work force. Norway is very well known for its politics of equality.
