Die japanische Frauenbremse
Neues aus der Weltpolitik.
In Japan machen sie es jetzt umgekehrt, da werden Frauen herabgewertet.
Tokyo Medical University for years doctored the test scores of female applicants to admit fewer women because school officials believed that once women got married and had children they would be unable to fulfill their emergency shifts at hospitals.
Japanese media reports said today (Aug. 2) that the university had since 2011 been altering the test scores of females to make them lower after it recorded a growing number of women getting accepted to the school. The test scores were rigged so that no more than 30% of the successful candidates would be women. […]
An unnamed official of Tokyo Medical University told the Yomiuri newspaper (link in Japanese) that the practice had been conducted at the school with “quiet consent,” and that it was seen as a “necessary evil” because of worries that women will drop out of the workforce once they become pregnant. The Nikkei newspaper cited an unnamed source (link in Japanese) as saying that the school wanted to ensure it could have sufficient doctors working at its affiliated hospital. An unnamed source told the Asahi newspaper that the worries were also linked to a continuing shortage of doctors in Japan.
Ähnliches schreibt die BBC, vermutlich aus derselben Quelle ab.
Sie haben also das gleiche Problem wie wir, zuwenig Ärzte. Und sehen dafür die gleiche Ursache, die hier viele sehen, dass bei Frauen die Zahl der Arztstunden, die nach einem Medizinstudium folgen, deutlich geringer ist.
Man geht das Problem aber unterschiedlich an: Hier hebt man den Frauenanteil, dort senkt man ihn.
(Gab aber Ärger, mal sehen, was da noch rauskommt.)
