  1. Increasing Suicides of Japanese Women and Young Generation after Colona Virus Pandemic, Daizo Egashira, CITOYENNETÉ(S) POLITIQUE, SOCIALE, SANITAIRE ET NUMÉRIQUE FACE AU COVID-19, 2022/11/17, With Invitation, English, Dominique Andolfatto (U. Bourgogne-Franche-Comté), Dijon, France, The number of suicides in Japan had been decreased every year since 2010, but reversed and increased in 2020. The increase in suicides was among women up to their early 60s, and especially among women in their early 20s, with a 40 percent increase compared to 2019. This report shows that limited social contact, and poor employment conditions in the Corona disaster inhibited women’s help-seeking behavior and resulted in an increase in suicides.
