While females in the country are recognized as having equal legal rights to men, Japan is known for their sexist rules against women in their country.

From mandatory high heels to a recent ban on eyeglasses, Japanese women are pushing back against restrictive dress codes in the working environment.

As per a recent report, Japanese female employees have been asked to wear contact lenses instead of eyeglasses so to match the “beauty” standard set for the women at workplaces. The women, however, won’t stay silent on this development and will fight against the ban.
