Tokyo Medical University Offers Compensation for Gender Discrimination

SNA (Tokyo) — In October, 24 women involved in the Tokyo Medical University scandal demanded compensation. They asked for 10,000 yen (about US$90) and the cost of the entrance exam and travel.

In early November, Tokyo Medical University stated that they would contact 101 applicants to see if they are still interested in joining. 67 of them will be women. The university will be forced to reduce the number of students they will accept in April 2019 depending on how many of the 101 cheated students decide to take up the offer.

“We will conduct fair entrance exams and never let the inappropriate practice be repeated… Nobody should be discriminated against because of gender,” stated Tokyo Medical University President Yukiko Hayashi.
