Comfort Women: Then and Now—Who They Were and Why We Should Remember Them
February 8–July 14, 2024
Tens of thousands of women and girls were forced into sexual slavery by the imperial Japanese army between 1932 and 1945. Forced to work in "comfort stations" for twelve hours a day, the women lived under deplorable conditions, moving about as they followed the army, then abandoned when the war ended. CARE (Comfort Women Action for Redress & Education) continues to tell the story of these women, pushing for acknowledgment of these human rights abuses from the Japanese government.
