Comfort Women

Do you know that during WWII between 1932 and 1945 thousands of women were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Military? These women are still fighting for an apology. They are between the ages of 70 and 90 years old and are dying off. They deserve justice before there are none of them left to speak. To let this atrocity go unpunished sets an appalling precedent especially in light of all the military conflict in the world at this time. Please, learn more and join their fight for justice.

If this makes you uncomfortable, it is your conscience telling you how wrong what happened is. Ignoring it will not make it go away. It will not make it less horrifying and it will not help women around the world have a voice and be heard. Have the strength to be uncomfortable and stand up for what is right.
