Reclaiming Our Honor.
Standing Tall With Dignity.
For over a decade, & as her rape was so high profile in the media, & for her safety, the public only knew her as "Jane, the Australian Rape Victim in Japan"
Then in March 2012, ten years later, Jane went public with her true identity, "Catherine Jane Fisher". "Jane" is her real middle name.

Warriors Japan was founded in 2002 by Catherine Jane a rape survivor. When she was raped in April 2002 by a U.S. military serviceman, she realized then that not even one 24 hour rape crisis center was available in Japan. For the past ten years she has dedicated her life to establish the first 24 hour rape crisis center, community awareness and prevention and speaking out to the public in hopes to break the silence.
Warriors Japan hopes to assist sexual violence survivors, their families and friends, without discrimination of race,income,religion or sexual orientation. Support with accompanying survivors to court cases, supplying online coping resources, introduction to legal and medical assistance, group and one to one counseling.
Warriors Japan is dedicated to standing in honor with survivors and empowering their lives.
"There Will Come A Day" was written and is sung by Catherine Jane Fisher & Rod Ross.
IN HOPE TO establish the first 24-hour Rape Crisis Center, the attempt was solely funded for ten years, by the founder of Warriors Japan, Catherine, a single mother of three boys. Finally, financially, mentally & phsically exhausted, she still did not give up.
Yet, due to lack of funding we are asking for the following support:
1.Seeking sponsors or web designer to help make this a proper website.Catherine Jane has a very extensive network domestically & internationally and it is her dream to make this accessible to others.
2. Publisher for her second book in English, ready for printing. The proposed title is, "Make Me Proud".
3. Letters of support are very welcome. This has been an extremely difficult ten years for Catherine Jane, & it is through the encouragement of her family and her supporters that she has been able to come this far.
4.Gallery for Catherine Jane's Artwork, for exhibition. She has over a hundred artworks.
For the past decade she has painted these as part of her ongoing healing.
Artwork is for sale.
5.Studio for recording songs written by and for Catherine. Singer song-writer, has dedicated songs for her & are ready for recording.
6.SUPPORT IN PURSUING JUSTICE AGAINST THE MAN THAT RAPED CATHERINE JANE. HE WAS FOUND GUILTY IN THE TOKYO DISTRICT COURT.
7. MEDICAL ASSISTANCE FOR HEALTH ISSUES. Seeking medical support. Since Catherine was raped, one of her sons started experiencing Grand Mal Seizures and he urgently needs medical treatment in Australia. Any support welcome.
8. SUPPORT BY THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT.

Make Me Proud was produced by 'JANE' Catherine Jane Fisher who was brutally raped in 2002 by a US military serviceman. This is about her journey and the lives of other rape victims and survivors and their heart-rending stories.
Documentary Film Make Me Proud, was sponsored by The Body Shop Japan Foundation.
Legal action in the United States has begun.
A case against the defendant, Bloke Deans has been filed. It is aimed solely at enforcing the Japanese judgement. Catherine's legal team in the USA, are not re-trying the rape allegations - the Tokyo District Court, already found Bloke Deans guilty of raping Catherine. It has already been proven that Bloke Deans, was found guilty in a Japanese Court of law, and now she is attempting to have an American court recognize the judgment.
The defendant has moved to dismiss the action based on procedure grounds, which Catherine's legal team thinks is improper.
She will be filing a response to their motion in the coming days and expect that the court will rule in her favor and let the action proceed.
However it may take the Court a few months to decide that issue.
Catherine has already been in court for 10 years in Japan, concerning this case and is seeking justice as soon as she can for herself and her sons.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS SUPPORTED ME AFTER I WAS RAPED.
IT IS BECAUSE OF ALL OF YOU, THAT I AM ALIVE TODAY.
