Yoshiro Mori Resigns as Tokyo Olympics President – The New York Times

TOKYO — Yoshiro Mori, president of the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee, resigned on Friday, a little over a week after he unleashed a firestorm by suggesting that women talk too much in meetings.

His resignation followed unrelenting international criticism of his sexist remarks, which presented another challenge to Japan’s efforts to carry off the postponed Games amid a raging pandemic.

No successor was named. At a news conference Friday evening, Toshiro Muto, chief executive of the organizing committee, said a selection committee would be formed to choose a new president “as soon as possible.”
