NFSJ Café #29
“Let’s Learn about New/Revised Laws on Protection of Women in Japan”
This year we have seen the passage of several laws and amendments to laws related to support and protection of women in Japan. Some of these laws were passed in response to longstanding requests by women’s support groups, while others were enacted as a result of swift action by support groups and lawmakers who shared a sense of crisis triggered by a certain event.
NFSJ staff members have conducted research on these movements, which even Japanese speakers have difficulty in understanding, and will share them with English speakers interested in this issue.
This event will be held with the hope that everyone will learn about this important legal change concerning women that has finally begun to take place in Japan, and that they will be able to support the people and organizations that are involved in this important change. Please join us even though it is a busy time at the end of the year.

The next NFSJ Cafe will feature Ms. Brittany Quy and Ms. Elly Williams, both working for the Walk Free. They estimate that there are 40.3 million people living in modern slavery worldwide. This presentation will discuss how they measure the scale of modern slavery, what modern slavery looks like in Japan and Australia, how COVID-19 has impacted the situation, and how understanding the scale of the problem can help us work towards long-term solutions.
Walk Free is an international human rights group dedicated to accelerating the end of modern slavery in all its forms. Through a combination of direct implementation, grassroots community engagement, and working in partnership with faiths, businesses, academics, NGOs, communities, and governments around the world, they work to address modern slavery and dismantle its core drivers.

Global Slavery Index 2018 Japan Report:
The issue of human trafficking is often thought to be difficult or irrelevant to us. But in fact, it is very close to us and has a lot to do with our daily lives.
In order to make this issue more familiar to people, NFSJ has created a video featuring a college student named Takumi, with illustrations by Namura Michiyo. Please use this tool to participate in the campaign!
