Japan’s Women To Be Allowed To Attend Meetings, Provided They Don’t Speak, Ruling Party Leaders Propose


By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Japan’s ruling party has proposed to invite women to attend key meetings – so long as they do not speak – days after its Olympics chief was forced to resign for his sexist comments.

Leaders of the Liberal Democratic Party decided to allow five female lawmakers to observe its all-male board meetings during which the women are forbidden from talking.

The new proposal comes after a sexism row was sparked by Tokyo Olympics chief, Yoshiro Mori, who claimed that women prolonged meetings because they spoke too much.
