Ayaka Shiomura

Tokyo Metropolitan Assemblywoman Ayaka Shiomura smiles as she speaks during a press conference at Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan in Tokyo Tuesday, June 24, 2014. Japanese newspapers splashed front-page photos on Tuesday of a male Tokyo assemblyman bowing deeply to his female colleague Shiomura after admitting that he had heckled her with a sexist remark last week. The uproar over the rude comments aimed at Shiomura by several male lawmakers reflects both greater awareness of women’s issues and the pervasiveness of traditional chauvinist attitudes in business and political circles.
