Japan lawmaker apologizes over sexist remark

Tokyo city assemblyman Akihiro Suzuki bows to his female counterpart Ayaka Shiomura for an apology at Tokyo Metropolitan City Hall in Tokyo Monday, June 23, 2014. Suzuki from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling party apologized for throwing one of several sexist hecklings at Shiomura Monday, five days after officials scrambled to identify the voices heard during her speech. A voice from the floor said "You are the one who should get married first," followed by laughter and more hecklings including "She must be single" and "Can't you have babies?" as Shiomura asked Tokyo's maternity support measures.[Photo/IC]
