Shocking Violence Against Women in Asia
In Japan alone, many women are groped on the subway although only an estimated 10 percent report the incident. This concern has even pushed the Japanese government to open women-only trains.
In India, there is also a disturbing rate of violence against women in every field of life. In November 2019, the entire country was shocked to find out that a young veterinary doctor was raped, murdered, and dumped on the side of the highway. Despite rising feminist movements, abuse of women is still dubbed as the biggest violation of human rights on earth. While there are rape cases that make it to the news, the suffering of more than 650 million Indian girls and women still go unnoticed.
Even in first-world countries like Korea, inequality is still a huge issue. Problems like the telegram chat room scandal, hotel and motel spycams, and online sexual abuse problems are still coming up.
