During and in the years leading up to World War II, the Japanese Army mobilized more than 200,000 women from across Asia into sexual slavery. The victims were euphemistically referred to as “Comfort Women,” and the rape centers as “Comfort Stations.” Since 1991, survivors have publicly come out with their stories to demand justice in the face of denials by the Japanese government, and have led one of the longest standing protests in recorded history.
Hosted by the Asian Law Students of Osgoode and the Osgoode Constitutional Law Society.
