Everyone knows about the MeToo Campaign, but is there any chance that a victim woman was lucky to get justice? Probably not! Now courageous women journalist Shiori Ito has got justice in the high profile of Me Too case after a long struggle in Tokyo, the capital of Japan.
First of all, let me explain clearly that Me Too Campaign is an international level movement that is against sexual harassment and sexual assault. Many cases also came up in the news media about this.
As seen with former Union Minister of India and Bharatiya Janata Party's Rajya Sabha MP MJ Akbar, against whom accusations of obscenity and sexual abuse have been made by female journalists like Ghazala Wahab and Saba Naqvi. His case is pending in the court and it will still go on because there is no significant turn in it.
Well, this has not been the scenario in Japan. Female journalist Shiro Ito knew after applying the charge of Me Too, that this battle of justice is going to be very difficult and prolonged, so she did not give up and only those who do not give up win in the end.
TV News reporter Noriyuki Yamaguchi, who is close to the current Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is punished by the court and as compensation, 30-year-old Shiori Ito will get to receive compensation of 1 lakh US dollars i.e. about 71 lakh rupees.
The case dates back to 2015 when Ito was called for dinner in the name of being given a job and Yamaguchi drugged him and raped him. Naturally, he continued to deny the allegations every time.
Describing himself as pure, the pervert had filed a lawsuit against Ito for Rs 13 crore, which was a tactic to put pressure on her so that she steps back from the fight, but the truth is that the same criminal is not convicted and Shiori Ito has emerged as the biggest and vocal face of the MeToo campaign in Japan.
Coming out of the court, she said that we have won! Why not? when only 4 percent of misdemeanor cases are reported in Japan.
Shiori Ito truly deserves praise, who did not give up at any moment and kept fighting for her honor. Where she is getting congratulations from women all over the world, the alleged feminist women here are silent. We are proud of Shiori Ito!
