Sexual Slavery in the Japanese Military During World War IIBook - 2000
First brought to the attention of the Japanese public in 1991 when three Korean women filed suit in Tokyo District Court charging that they were forced into sexual servitude by the Japanese military during World War II, the existence of comfort stations and the military's role in running them have been hotly debated in Japan. How large a role did the military, and by extension the government, play in setting up and administering these camps? Were the women in actuality willing prostitutes freely offering their services, as some officials have averred, or victims of deception and, in some cases, kidnapping?
