. Chief Of Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee Resigns Over Sexist Remarks « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NPR/Japan’s Olympic organizing chief resigned Friday following a groundswell of criticism that his remarks more than a week ago showed disdain for women and that he tried to maintain the male-dominated status quo by installing his own replacement on the Tokyo Games organizing committee.

At a special meeting of the committee in Tokyo on Friday, Yoshiro Mori, 83, acknowledged that his remarks, to the effect that women’s speaking time at Japanese Olympic Committee meetings should be limited because they talk too much, were inappropriate and had caused much chaos.
