Japanese man sues Women’s University over rejection of application

A young Japanese man who was rejected by an all-women university where he wanted to study nutrition is suing the college over gender discrimination, reports said on Wednesday.

In what is believed to be the first case in Japan challenging the constitutionality of a publicly-run women’s university, the man is seeking a ruling that would allow him to take an entrance exam at Fukuoka Women’s University, the Asahi Shimbun reported.

“Not allowing men to take the exam violates Article 14 of the constitution which proclaims equality before the law,” said the man, who was not identified in the report.
