A Japanese midwife says women of the minority Rohingya Muslims who fled Myanmar have been subjected to high levels of sexual violence.
Marina Kojima held a news conference on Monday in Tokyo. She had worked to aid the refugee women as a member of the international organization, Doctors Without Borders.
Kojima says Rohingya women who become pregnant before getting married are considered to bring shame to the family. She says even pregnancy as a result of rape is considered the fault of the victim.
Kojima points out many sexual abuse victims have no one to consult with and cannot come to a hospital for fear of being noticed.
The midwife added that some women have died after attempting to terminate their pregnancy without medical assistance.
Kojima called for the expansion of psychological support for women who have suffered sexual violence repeatedly, or who have undergone brutal and traumatizing experiences, such as having their families killed.
