    Weʼve raised £3,456 to Help change the outdated rape laws in Japan by supporting Shiori

    Funded on Saturday, 8th May 2021

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    Journalist Shiori Ito was raped by a more senior member of her profession, as determined by the Civil Court in Tokyo on December 18, 2019.

    Her treatment during the police investigation caused her much distress. For example, she was made to re-enact the rape with a blow-up doll in front of male police officers; there were no female police officers available. She is now campaigning to update the century old Japanese law on rape, to change police procedures, and to try to alter Japanese society’s perception of rape, which often blames the victim and not the perpetrator. Telling victims to not make a fuss, or shame will be brought to them and their family. Due to this lack of support victims suffer mental health problems and are afraid to speak out.

    The senior journalist who raped her is now also bringing a lawsuit against Shiori accusing her of lying. A prominent cartoonist has also libelled Shiori, and Shiori has to pursue a court case against her.

    Shiori urgently needs our money and support to continue fighting her cases.

    Court proceedings in Japan are very expensive and bringing people to justice is costing Shiori both emotional and financial labour.

    Shiori Ito is a symbolic figure for Women’s Rights in Japan. Her public rape case is the first of its kind seen in the country and has started a long overdue conversation in the nation about attitudes towards women. Your donations will aid her campaign, to make the attitude of Japanese society towards victims of rape fairer.

    I live in London and am part of a Japanese focussed women's rights group. I'm also a friend of Shiori Ito and supported her through difficult times. I hope her bravery and campaigning will change the lives of rape victims in Japan for the better. 性被害の法制度改革に尽力している詩織さんを応援しませんか。
