Japan: Student verklagt Uni wegen Männerdiskriminierung
A man in his 20s who was rejected after applying to a women-only university where he hoped to study nutrition is suing the college for gender discrimination.
In what is believed to be the first case in Japan challenging the constitutionality of a publicly run women’s university, the man is seeking a decision from the courts that would allow him to take an entrance exam at Fukuoka Women’s University, according to a lawyer representing the man.
“Not allowing men to take the exam violates Article 14 of the Constitution, which proclaims equality before the law,” the man, whose identity has not been revealed, was quoted by the Asahi Shimbun as saying. He is also seeking ¥500,000 in damages.
A lawyer representing him is arguing that women-only colleges are no longer relevant and discriminate against men.
