    Many Companies in Japan Still Force Women to Wear Heels to Work.....

    Japan's labor minister said the enforcement of these dress codes is "necessary"




    Takumi Nomoto defended controversial dress codes common throughout the country that require women to wear heels to work, BBC reported. The health and labor minister said that it was “necessary” for companies to enforce these dress codes.


    “It is socially accepted as something that falls within the realm of being occupationally necessary and appropriate,” he said at a parliamentary committee on Wednesday after he was asked to comment on a recent campaign launched by actor and writer Yumi Ishikawa, who is petitioning for the removal of the discriminatory workplace dress codes.


    While a mandatory heels policy may indeed seem like a relic of sexist workplace environments gone by, the movement in Japan isn’t the first of its kind in recent memory. As BBC noted, similar petitions have been launched in the UK and Canada in recent years in which women successfully petitioned companies to modify their dress code requirements.....snip~

    Company dress codes need to be left-up to the company IMO. Never heard of governmental interference in dress codes before.

    My daughter worked for a Japanese owned company in Jacksonville for awhile. They treated the woman like 4th class citizens. They gave them titles but never allowed them to become involved in the management or production of the companies. The lowliest male janitor had more status than the female General Traffic Manager ostensibly in charge of all shipping and receiving of their products and supplies.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Wow!

    Who'd have thunk that?

    Japan still defines a woman as having an XX chromosome pair.

    They are so advanced!

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.
