Japan is terrible about women's rights. In other news today: It turns out water may actually be wet. We await further studies
Some guy way back in the day prolly got rejected by a beautiful girl wearing glasses, and went around about how no woman should wear them at all as an act of revenge/coping.
Yes they're highlighting it because a lot of Japanese people didn't even know about it. Which is why it made the news, because a TV show exposed that certain businesses have this policy.
Is it neutral reporting? or are they making fun/defending it?Yes they're highlighting it because a lot of Japanese people didn't even know about it. Which is why it made the news, because a TV show exposed that certain businesses have this policy.
It says "A new form of harassment? Women banned from wearing glasses at the workplace."
Then the pictures show various reasonings behind certain businesses banning women from wearing glasses, because viewers would like to know why.
I don't have the video source but this appears to be a different show than most of the other graphics are sourced from, and they're running through the 3 main thrusts of the arguments for the ban: "Appearance" (doesn't match kimonos, concealing your face is rude to customers, makes you look dour, doesn't match certain job types like miko for some reason) "Hygiene" (glasses can fall into food somehow, the aforementioned "adjusting glass is is haram") and "Safety." It's unclear without the source video if they're being neutral (they mention the uproar in the graphic) but the flood of accompanying graphics on the reasons behind the ban sure doesn't look great next to a middle aged man in a kimono wearing glasses like it ain't no thing.
