‘Comfort Women’ Justice Coalition

We are proud members of the “Comfort Women” Justice Coalition, a grassroots, multi-ethnic and multi-national group of individuals and organizations that are part of the global “Comfort Women” Justice Movement. We are guided by the powerful leadership of the grandmothers (the surviving “Comfort Women”) themselves. In 2017, we unveiled the memorial Comfort Women: Column of Strength in San Francisco to remember the hundreds of thousands of women and girls sexually enslaved by the Japanese Imperial Army from the early 1930s to 1945 and to educate the public about their history. The memorial symbolizes our international resolve never to let that atrocity be repeated, and the memorial is also a reverent testament to all those who have been victims of sexual violence and sex trafficking.
