'Ruling party lawmaker Mio Sugita was voted the political figure who made the most sexist remark over the past year, defeating former Tokyo Olympic chief Yoshiro Mori.

'Sugita, a 53-year-old Lower House member, is known for making offensive comments. But the one that won her the most votes in the online contest came in September 2020, when she said that “women can lie as much as they want” about sexual violence.'

I didn't know there was a contest... but I guess congratulations to Sugita for being such a terrible ally to her peers.

I want to see the whole list now. Cringefest 2021.
