My husband made me more aware of the history of Japan, which include the brutal rape, sexual harrasment and neglect of women and little children. I did some research on the subject and was shocked to see that they had no 'say' in the matter.
It is difficult to express things like this in words for me or even to look at those pictures, therefore I combined letters from the traditional and modern Japanese language to express the word 'expression'.
