What’s Going on in Schools and Homes and on Streets? ----3rd Symposium on Victims of Pornography and Human Rights of Women and Children
The Association for Victims of Pornography and Sexual Violence has been raising questions about Japan’s social conditions where the violation fo sexual rights and the wide-spread of pornography do not receive enough attention.
This year we are organizing our 3rd symposium to consider the environment in which children are being raised as well as the sexual harassment and abuse in schools and local communities.
The symposium will be held in a large hall of Toui-kenpo Kaikan, Shinjuku, Tokyo, between 13:30 and 17:00 on November 20, 2011.
For location see:
Speakers include KANEKO Yumi, a school nurse who is promoting sex education that focuses on the human rights implications of sex and gender, TACHIBANA Jun, an editor and writer who is active in collecting the voices of teenage girls who hang out aimlessly in Shibuya, and HAYAKAWA Satoshi, who is working in a foster home, supporting the children who have been sexually abused. This symposium will provide a chance to both learn about those problems and discuss solutions to them.
