Description - Sexual Violence and the Law in Japan by Catherine Burns

This book provides a detailed examination of judicial decision-making in Japanese cases involving sexual violence. It describes the culture of 'eroticised violence' in Japan, which sees the feminine body as culpable, and the legal system which encourages homogeneity and conformity in decision-making, and shows how the legal constraints confronting women claiming sexual assaults are enormous. It includes analysis of specific case studies, and a discussion of recent moves to address the problem.
