All national papers focused on a remark made by Tokyo Olympics Organizing Committee Chairman Mori during a meeting held remotely yesterday. He suggested that women talk too much in meetings by saying: “On boards with a lot of women, the meetings take so much time…. Women have a strong sense of competition. If one person raises their hand, others probably think they need to say something too. That’s why everyone speaks.” While noting that the comment drew laughter from participants in the meeting, Asahi said the remark has already triggered a furor on social media.
