Catherine "Jane" Fisher was raped by a US Navy serviceman outside Yokosuka naval base in Japan in 2002. After reporting the rape and identifying the suspect she was treated very badly by the US military authorities, who very quickly moved the attacker out of the country to avoid the legal processes, and also by the Japanese police who proved obstructive and downright inept in their investigation. Since then the Australian mother of three has been fighting for justice for herself and been fight to set up rape crisis centres in Japan and raise the awareness of the need for sensitivity when dealing with this crime as this is seriously lacking in the legal processes and media reporting of rape in Japan.
