Sexual harassment victim appeals – “Compensation now!”

On May 22, 2011, there was a gathering, “Compensation for sexual harassment victims now! – Toward revision of standards for recognizing it so as to reflect its reality”, in central Tokyo. A sexual harassment victim who was forced to leave her workplace and see a psychiatrist appealed in the meeting. TAKENOBU Mieko, a former member of the editorial board of Asahi Shimbun, a national newspaper, said in a panel discussion, “Those having power or in a stronger position take advantage of the weakness of workers when committing sexual harassment. The victims cannot continue to work, and this problem becomes a hotbed for poverty”. The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has considered revising criteria for compensation for sexual harassment and their management in its subcommittee meeting. In the “Compensation now!” gathering, participants adopted an appeal to demand standards and guidelines for widely recognizing the compensation based on the reality of sexual harassment.

While competitive basketball is carefully regulated, numerous variations of basketball have developed for casual play. Competitive basketball is primarily an indoor sport played on carefully marked and maintained basketball courts, but less regulated variations are often played outdoors in both inner city and rural areas.
