Government of South Korea Pays Tribute To Comfort Women

South Korea

 

Seoul: The government of South Korea on Wednesday organized a series of events to pay tribute to comfort women amid escalating diplomatic and trade tensions with Japan. This is the second time that Seoul has commemorated International Memorial Day for Comfort Women, a term for some 200,000 mostly Korean women who were forced to work in brothels for Japanese Imperial troops stationed mainly in China and on the Korean Peninsula from the 1930s until the end of World War II in 1945. In 2018, the government designated the International Memorial Day for Comfort Women, which falls on August 14, as a national day. (IANS)
