Mori in trouble due to objectionable comments on women
Tokyo, February 11
Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee President Yoshiro Mori objected to the women. Mori may get in trouble with this comment. According to reports, he may resign from his post on Friday.
Japan’s Kyodo news agency and other reports on Thursday quoted unidentified sources aware of the matter as saying that Mori would step down from his post on Friday.
They have to take this step more than a week after the objectionable remarks made on women and then public debate on gender equality in Japan.
Now, with five months left for the Olympics to start, he has to leave his post.
Reports said that the decision is likely to be announced at the executive board meeting of the organizing committee on Friday.
What did Mori say on women?
At the Japanese Olympic Committee meeting, 83-year-old Mori said that women speak highly because they have a sense of competition among themselves. Former Prime Minister Mori later apologized for his remarks but refused to resign.
