According to government figures, the number of people suffering from it in Japan is 10 to 1.5 million, but psychologists estimate that about 10 million or 8% of the population is suffering from it. People suffering from this think of committing suicide out of frustration. Also he can harm others. Women in particular are becoming the target of such people.

Prejudice against women increased significantly during Corona
Lawyer and human rights activist Kazuno Huto says that prejudice against women in Japanese society has increased significantly during Corona. Some men feel that women are inferior to them and cannot tolerate it if they are not subordinate to them or are happy. Women who stand up for their rights are also targeted by such men.

In early August, a 36-year-old man attacked people on a train with a knife, injuring ten people, but the worst victim of his violence was a 20-year-old girl. He was stabbed in the back more than 10 times. The youth who attacked said in police custody that he was trying to kill happy looking women for the last 6 years.
