Talk/Power Point Presentation on Korean Comfort Women




Sharing many images of former comfort women (Korean and women from a dozen other countries), Maija will describe their lives before, during, and after WWII and address core issues.  Why and how did they become comfort women, most of them aged 12-19?  70% of the estimated 50,000-300,000 comfort women were Koreans.  What happened to them after the war?  What are the prospects of reaching a resolution between Korea and Japan surrounding the comfort women issue?
