Japan journalist wins high-profile #MeToo case


A Tokyo court awards 3.3 million yen ($30,000) in damages to journalist Shiori Ito, who accused a former TV reporter of rape in one of the most high-profile cases of the #MeToo movement in Japan. "I feel this is the closing of one chapter. However, that we won this case doesn't mean this [sexual assault] didn't happen. I still have to face up to the scar I suffered. This is not the end," she says.
