Comfort women : sexual slavery in the Japanese military during World War II by Yoshiaki Yoshimi( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the definitive account, available for the first time in English, of sexual slavery in the Japanese military during World War II. The system in which untold thousands of women, euphemistically known as "comfort women," were rounded up and imprisoned in "comfort stations" established and maintained by the Japanese military seized public attention in 1991 when three Korean women filed suit in Tokyo District Court charging that they were forced into sexual servitude and demanding compensation." "Yoshimi Yoshioki provides a wealth of documentation and testimony to prove the existence of some 2,000 centers where as many as 200,000 Korean, Filipina, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Burmese, Dutch, Australian, and some Japanese women were restrained for months and forced to engage in sexual activity with Japanese military personnel. Many were teenagers, some as young as fourteen. To date, the Japanese government has neither admitted responsibility for creating the comfort station system nor given compensation directly to former comfort women."--Jacket
