Women’s Activism for the Comfort Women in Korea


Recently I become interested in women’s activism for the comfort women in Korea. Especially, I think some issues regarding the comfort women (such as comfort women organizing, protest repertoires, funding, and confession) provide us very interesting examples of social movements in a marginal position, not of a middle class women’s movements. Although I don’t have a thorough knowledge of the comfort women in history, the contemoprary activism for the comfort women can be an interesting topic.

Here is the homepage of The Korean Council for th Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan.

Really long name. isn’t it? We call this organization Jungdaehyup in short in Korean. If you are interested, please visit here:
