Shiori Ito's dream was to become a journalist. Last year, she came forward with a revelation that a famous journalist whom she met for a consultation sexually abused her. However, Japanese society showed a cold response to her pain. She was even blackmailed and eventually had to leave her home country and move to the U.K. BBC has produced a documentary film about Shiori Ito under the title "Japan's Secret Shame." She continues to be part of the "Me Too" movement to help Japanese victims of sexual violence.

Shiori Ito breaks down in tears.

[Soundbite] Shiori Ito(Victim of sexual violence) : "It's the first time someone said that it was the best I could do. It made me realize that I should not chastise myself and that I have done nothing wrong and that I can regain courage."
