Japan under fire for child-porn rape game

Human rights organization says the country has to fulfill its obligations as a signatory to the UN convention against all forms of discrimination against women.

Equality Now, a NY-based human rights group is calling on Japan’s government to help end child sexual exploitation by banning RapeLay, a virtual game in which players get points for raping schoolgirls. The game can be played on PC’s and was dropped by online retailer Amazon earlier this year after it was discussed at a UN conference on sexual exploitation of children. The game is still sold on other sites however.
