Couldn’t be more respectful to this woman! What touched me most is her smile, after going through all these painful experiences, she takes the social responsibility from the misfortune which she suffered herself and turns it into strength ,to fight against the stale stereotypes and bias of RAPE in the contemporary Japanese society. To speak for more sexual victims, she puts pressure on the authority in the cost of her privacy being offended and receiving malicious comments from the public. She also points out the unreasonable investigatory approaches of the raping cases like using the inflatable doll to reproduce the crime scene in front of male police officers. And there are only a small number of rape helping centers in Japan compared to Western developed countries. Actually her efforts do have some positive changes in the society, both legislation and perhaps a noticeable improvement in the administration. However, the historical and national characteristic of Japan and maybe all the East-Asia area, is the strong feeling of shame. People are not willing to discuss this kind of issue publicly and refuse to put it on agenda. By the way, it is pretty ironic that as a sex-open country, Japan is such backward on the punishment of sex crimes. We can see it will be a long and exhausted March for women and their supporters to fight for the rights women deserved after being harassed or harmed. But at least all the try won’t be effortless , even the slightest progress is far more valuable than nothing has been done.
