Retain "Comfort Women" Issue for ALL Women: An Update



I have had the opportunity, of late, to speak about WWII "Comfort Women" at readings and workshops and other venues.  After a White House Briefing to Filipino Americans, I updated community leaders from across the nation.  The Lolas are lost in all these reports -- as are "Comfort Women" from China, Dutch-Indonesia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Australia.  Japan would have you believe this is a Japanese/Korean thing -- a little dispute between nations with traditionally rocky relations.  It is not.  200,000 women and girls across Asia were taken hostage and placed into military sex-slave camps during WWII by the Japanese Imperial Army.  It is a human rights issue.  It is a treat our women with respect issue.

Tokyo Courts, Thank you

There is hope after all.
