"Wearing glasses at work has become an emotive topic in Japan following reports that some firms have told female employees to remove them.

Several local news outlets said some companies had "banned" eyewear for female employees for various reasons.

Among them, some retail chains reportedly said glasses-wearing shop assistants gave a "cold impression"."

So the reason is for them to look more feminine? I guess a significant enough of the population doesn't view glasses as attractive? Needless to say, it's a sexist policy and an attempt to control women.

Your thoughts?

That's not right. Japan has taken several steps back.

Women should be treated equally to men.

I have a daughter and I wouldn't want her treated this way in any country.

Japan know how to have work efficient employees. The kind that can’t see 6 inches in front of them.

So this would be progressive anti-PC? :LOL: Would this go along with rights for behind grabbing subway riders?

It’s a interesting country I would love to visit but it has it’s quirks with a plummeting birth rate and huge depression problems and nothing is more important than efficiency.
