The other day at the Japan Men’s Conference… The session started with a keynote speech by Yoko Fukao, followed by a panel talk with her, a panel talk by three women who are involved in the issue, breakout sessions, and then a social event. That’s 11 hours…
Listening to the panelists talk about their experiences and thoughts, and learning about their recovery process, I think we were able to understand what kind of support we should provide, and why it is so difficult for people to recover through domestic violence support services in general. However, unfortunately, this is the only place where the people involved in domestic violence can tell the truth.
So, the Japan Men’s Conference is not going to stop… Next year will be the 15th conference, but the location is yet to be decided.
