Solidarity request from Yumi Ishikawa of Kutoo

Ishikawa Yumi, who is the originator of Japan's #KuToo movement and an activist, called for strengthening feminist bonds in Tweets. Recently, Ishikawa has been attacked by anonymous men and misogynists. They have criticized her harshly. Such critics itself indicates a backlash phenomenon. Many Korean feminists took photos of their feet without wearing high-heel shoes and uploaded them on Twitter to encourage Ishikawa.
