“When I see Mori’s comments labeled as a misstep, I am angry that it is not a misstep. It’s a word of mouth for national policy,” said Minky Worden, director of global initiatives at Human Rights Watch. “This is an active policy to exclude women from the positions they qualify for and will honestly do a better job than Men. ”She added that the fallout revealed how the male-dominated, hierarchical elite has intensively resisted calls for reform in the sport, opposed increased representation of women and instituted a system in which coaches are accused of beating child athletes, experts say.” For the “chaos” his comments caused. While trying to justify the lack of high-ranking women in the Japanese Olympic Committee, the organization failed to achieve an official goal of more than 40 percent of the board members being women. Too much in meetings and make it work for a very long time. The comments sparked a wave of anger and calls for Mori’s resignation, saying on Friday: “The important thing is that the Olympic Games should be held in July, and we must avoid a situation in which my presence impedes the delivery of the Games.” However, it was not apparent that Morrie was truly repentant, his decisive gesture being to try to choose a successor, ignore calls to choose a woman or even just a younger man, and try to hand over the oversight of the Games to an older adult. Man Supports Corporal Punishment of Children: Mori’s bid to introduce 84-year-old former Olympic footballer Sapporo Kwabuchi and seasoned sports director will likely be thwarted. Olympic Games Minister Sekou Hashimoto said on Friday that nothing had been decided and that choosing a successor for Mori should go through a “formal process”. The World Economic Forum ranks Japan 121 out of 153 countries for gender parity, with the largest gender gap between advanced economies. Women made up only 5.2 percent of CEOs at all Japanese companies listed in 2019, according to government data, and men dominate the sports ranks. Last year, Human Rights Watch released a report on the physical, sexual, and verbal abuse that young athletes routinely subjected to. He suffers while training sports in Japan, often leading to depression, suicide, physical disabilities, and life-long trauma. Worden says the system is fueled by a culture that punishes people for speaking out and has very few women in positions of authority that can help protect young athletes, especially girls. “It is not feasible to continue to hire men who refuse to provide a space for women and girls to come forward and obtain their basic rights, such as not being abused in sports, getting money, and getting“ medical care. ”As long as dinosaurs control the top of the sport, they will have it. A detrimental effect on the career path and potential of talented young female players who represent the best hope for Japan’s future. ”Teenage table tennis, basketball and volleyball players have all committed suicide in recent years after complaining of verbal or physical abuse by their coaches. Kaori Yamaguchi, Olympic medalist A precedent in judo and a board member of the Japanese Olympic Committee, she has struggled for many years to get more women into decision-making positions in Japan a sport. Yamaguchi says men endorse the idea, but when it comes to actually making room for women “they start making excuses such as not having Women knowledgeable enough. ” Yamaguchi says there is a shortage of female coaches in Japan, which not only closes the career option for female athletes, it also fuels A sporting culture where winning is everything. This in turn prevents many children from participating, with one survey showing that between 30 and 40 percent of primary school children exercise for less than an hour per week, she said. “Sport in Japan is about working hard rather than having fun,” she said. “Coaches who themselves are physically punished do so to their students, like domestic violence children who grow up and do the same to their children.” Yamaguchi said children who play sports tend to blame themselves for not achieving performance goals. “In Japan, she said that the self-esteem of children who play sports is very low, while sports should give people self-respect.” But Mori’s comments also point to the structural problems that prevent change. What Mori’s remarks show is the underlying atmosphere in which he lives. People Yuko Inazawa, director of the Japan Rugby Football Association, said the sport has made efforts to foster a more positive culture and allow people to do so. Express your concerns in recent years, with coaches from countries like New Zealand helping to promote change, while CEO Kimi Iwata has taken Measures to protect judo players from abuse after joining the sport’s board of directors in 2015, but Inazawa said more work is needed across the sport as a whole to bring women into high positions and address what is known in Japan as “power harassment.” Women on boards can reduce power harassment and sexual harassment. ”“ Doing so would provide a powerful shield for the female athletes. ”Mori’s choice to succeed Kwabuchi was a very problematic one in the Japanese context, he says. Experts, after zealously tweeting in favor of parents and teachers “raise his hand” “to children when they” take the wrong turn “in 2019, but now it seems unlikely that he will be chosen.” With criticism locally and from abroad, we will not have the impression of change without a woman or Generation change, a government official was quoted as telling Fuji TV.
