Striking statement for Japan: 150,000 euros for the victim of sexual abuse

The MeToo movement has hardly gained a foothold in Japan, while sexually transgressive behavior is a major problem in the country. According to the most recent 2014 survey by the Japan Bureau of Gender Equality, only 3.7 percent of victims went to the police. More than two in three victims decided not to share their experiences with anyone.

Of those who did go public, the majority wanted to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation or public humiliation. In the few cases where women did speak up, they often faced an online smear campaign and death threats. For this reason, the victim in this case decided to ask the media not to use her name and that of the suspect.
