no Japanese word for them

Suzanne Price:

The Japanese word for rape is “rapu”; the Japanese word for sexual harassment is “seku hara.” These words are “borrowed” from the English language because traditionally, there was no Japanese word for them and therefore no previously (voiced) concept for these assaults of sexual harassment in Japan.
