TOKYO MEDICAL UNIVERSITY FOR REJECTED WOMEN


In August 2018, another egregious systematic discrimination against women surfaced in Japan. More than nine Japanese medical schools had rigged female applicants’ test scores lower for years so that they could maintain male-dominance in the medical industry where the work environment is often supposedly “too demanding for women.” Tokyo Medical University for Rejected Women is a fictional school that the women who were rejected from medical schools established so they could continue to fully engage in medicine while fulfilling societal expectations in the Japanese medical industry that traditionally favors men. Men who wish to become doctors flock to attend this university, where the all-female students will operate on them using a robotic surgical system, Frieda Xi (an updated version of da Vinci Xi) to convert them into perfect, flawless male doctors. The doctors will then be sheepishly delivered to hospitals throughout this country by drones, as “graduates” of this university.
