In March 2019, several sexual cases were given the verdict of “not guilty” by the court acknowledging sexual assault and abuse.

 

On April 11, over 500 women gathered in front of Tokyo Station, despite the cold spring night. Something that no one had imagined has happened. Although the demonstration was over, although the speeches were over, no one went back home. A lot of women, one after the other, got the mic and began speaking. It was as if the lid, which had long trapped our pain, suddenly was set free.

 

Much of the talk has been about sexual violence in the past. Although we might be telling our stories now, we can't change the past. But we have begun to speak of the pain of our past so that it will not happen again in order to change our future. 

That night was the beginning of everything....
