Statement on women: The head of the Tokyo Olympics had to resign
A few days ago, the head of the Tokyo Olympics, who had come under fire for making statements about women, finally resigned.
According to British media, 83-year-old Yoshiro Mori, head of the Tokyo Olympics, had said about women that “women talk a lot and meetings take a lot of time because there are many women on their board of directors”.
The head of the Olympic Committee said that if we increase the number of women in the board members, we will definitely have to increase their talking time because it is very difficult to eliminate them, which is very painful. He was sharply criticized by the head of the Tokyo Olympic Committee for demanding his resignation, but Yoshiro Mori apologized for his remarks and refused to resign.
According to British media, Yoshiro once again apologized for his statement in the meeting of the special committee and announced his resignation.
“What’s important about holding the Olympics since July is not a case in which my presence is an obstacle,” Yoshiro said.
British media say no decision has yet been made on who will replace former Japanese Prime Minister Mori as head of the Olympic Committee.
