The tears are not dried out yet: two “Comfort Women” events

An organisation called The World Conference on Japanese Military Sexual Slavery is holding two discussion sessions on the Korean Comfort Women.

The conferences aim to recognise and understand the sexual enslavement of thousands of women by Japanese military forces throughout Asia during the Second World War.

3 November, 7:30 – 8:30pm, SOAS Room G2 & G3
4 November, 7:00 – 8:00pm, Trinity College Oxford, Danson Room

Three guests will be appearing: Katherine Barraclough from Amnesty International, former comfort woman Won-ok Gil and singer Julie Matthews.

More details can be found on their Facebook page, where there is more background information on the Comfort Women.

The SOAS event is organised by the University of London Korean Society
