Japan's LDP party invites women to 'look, not talk' at key meetings

Days after Japan's Olympics chief was forced to resign over sexist comments, the ruling party has decided to invite women to attend key meetings - as long as they do not speak. The Liberal Democratic Party proposed allowing five female lawmakers to observe its all-male board meetings. They cannot talk during the meeting - only submit opinions afterwards. The Tokyo Olympics organising committee chief had sparked a firestorm by saying women talked too much in meetings.
