Comfort Women Memorial in Glendale, CA  Two former comfort women visiting Los Angeles offered declarations of support for the controversial comfort women memorial in Glendale, reports KPCC (photo by Melissa Wall).

“Thank you for erecting the peace monument and thank you for trying to protect the peace monument,” Il-Chul Kang said.

The monument has been challenged in a lawsuit filed by the Global Alliance for Historical Truth and two of its members.

Kang and Ok-Seon Lee are on a visit which next week will take them to comfort women memorials in Virginia and New Jersey.

What do the two women hope to accomplish? You can read about that on KPCC.
