During WWII the Japanese military enslaved large number of women, particularly from countries Japan had colonized such as Korea, for sexual use. This edition of WINGS tells how it happened, how Japan has gotten away with it, and about the activism that women have mounted for the survivors’ claims.
Angela Lytle is a feminist activist and human rights educator who works internationally with the comfort women support movement. She is also the Executive Director of the Women’s Human Rights Education Institute.
