Chinese Comfort Women
Testimonies From Imperial Japan's Sex SlavesUnknown - 2013
Chinese Comfort Women is the first English-language book featuring accounts of the "comfort station" experiences of women from Mainland China, forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during the Asia-Pacific War. Through personal narratives from twelve survivors, this book reveals the unfathomable atrocities committed against women during the war and correlates the proliferation of "comfort stations" with the progression of Japan's military offensive. Drawing on investigative reports, local histories, and witness testimony, Chinese Comfort Women puts a human face on China's war experience and on the injustices suffered by hundreds of thousands of Chinese women.
