Japanese rape victim is recovering after rape kit tests confirmed
Japanese rape survivor Kiyoko Kusano has returned home from a rape kit test after she was told she was cleared of the crime.
Kusano was in the hospital following the assault in July 2015 when she was allegedly raped by a man she met on the internet.
After her recovery, she has been released from hospital.
She told reporters she feels like a winner and that she wants to do everything she can to help other victims.
In September, she said that she hoped that Japan would improve its laws and take swift action to protect women from rape.
“I am hopeful that Japan will change their laws and laws will be enforced more quickly and vigorously, so that rape victims can recover quickly and be given the support they need,” she said.
“I believe that this will result in a better future for women in Japan.”
