During World War II, more than 200,000 young women in Korea, China, the Philippines, and Indonesia were kidnapped and coerced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army. Despite formal apologies issued by the Japanese government over the years, there has been little restitution for aging survivors. Some 70 years later, three “grandmothers” summon the courage to tell their stories despite decades of silence and shame. In search of healing and justice, these former “comfort women” come forward to speak with loved ones, other survivors, and even the United Nations Human Rights Council, so that history will be neither forgotten nor repeated.
