Japan's parliament is now more inclusive.

For the first time, the country's parliament opened a special session including more women and two disabled members.

All of them were elected last month.

Japan's Emperor Naruhito and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe both attended the opening ceremony of the "Extraordinary Diet" session in Tokyo.
