Japan backs transgender people using the bathroom that matches their gender in landmark court case

A trans woman brought her case against the government to a court in Tokyo, arguing that her workplace discriminated against her when it limited the bathrooms that she could use.

The woman, who worked for the government at the Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry, will be paid damages of ¥1.32 million.
It’s the first ruling in Japan in favour of a person suffering workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, said lawyers representing the woman.
“The restriction is illegal because it constrains people’s benefits of living their lives in accordance with their self-identified genders,” presiding judge Kenji Ebara said when handing down the ruling.
