Comfort Women
Keith PR

South Korea’s Minister of Gender Equality and Family Cho Yoon-seon is calling on both the United States and United Nations to help solve the issue of the comfort women who were forced into prostitution during World War II, reports the Korea Times.

She visited the comfort women memorial on Saturday in Bergen County, New Jersey and met with the president of Korean American Civic Empowerment.

This just a day after giving a speech to the United Nation’s Third Committee meeting.
“An estimated 100,000 or more women were forced into sex slavery during World War II by Japan. Among them, only 56 victims are now alive in Korea. I urge Japan to offer a sincere apology for the inhumane things the country did to young girls and then take necessary measures,” said Cho.
