An unusual macho comment, from the president of the organization committee of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics it aroused widespread repudiation in the international community. Yoshiro Mori, 83, He said that the meetings with women are too long because they “have difficulties” to finish their interventions. The man’s outburst was published by the Japanese press.

“The boards of directors with many women have been too long,” complained Yoshiro Mori, 83, in a meeting with officials of the Japanese Olympic Committee, open to the press.

“If you increase the number of female executive members, without their speaking time not being limited to some extent, have a hard time finishing, which is annoying “, Mori added normally.

As if there was nothing wrong with his comment, the man continued: “Women have the spirit of competition. If one raises her hand (to intervene), the others believe that they should express themselves as well. That’s why they all end up talking “, added.

“We have eight women on the organizing committee (of the Tokyo Games), but they know how to stay in place “, noted Mori, former prime minister of Japan (2000-2001).

Although the words of the president of the Committee caused laughter among some of those present, they account for the naturalization of machismo and gender inequalities in that country.
