In remembrance of the more than 200,000 women and girls who were abducted for the use of sexual slavery by the armed forces of the Government of Imperial Japan, 1930's-1945. Known to the world as "comfort women", they suffered heinous crimes against humanity that must not go unrecognized. The grave violations of human dignity that they endured will not be forgotten.
