The Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee will increase the number of positions held by women. Currently, there are 34 people on the committee's board and only 7 women. It is planned that the committee will expand to 45 members by hiring 12 women. Former athletes and experts in the field of gender equality are being considered as candidates.

If the reform is honored, the percentage of women on the committee's board will increase to 40%. This is one of the measures to counter discrimination. Recall that a scandal erupted in February after former Tokyo Olympic Committee head Yoshiro Mori spoke out, saying that women talk too much at meetings. After a barrage of criticism, Mr. Mori resigned.
