Most victims of sexual crimes in Japan never seek help.
According to a government report, many women attempt to deal with the trauma of an attack or rape by themselves.
67.9% of respondents to a poll said they had told no one about the incident.
When asked why, 46.2% replied they were "too embarrassed" to talk about the horrible experience. Twenty-two percent said they wanted to forget the whole thing. Twenty-nine percent, the third largest reply, was "nothing will change if I speak up."
