Fighting for Justice
1990, almost 40 women’s groups in Korea petitioned the Japanese government to admit that women were forced to be comfort women; to publicly apologize with full disclosure; to raise a memorial to honor those forced into sexual slavery and to serve as a reminder; and to provide monetary reparations and record these facts to be included in historical curricular education. The government denied allegations.
In 1991, three former Korean comfort women filed a lawsuit against the Japanese government.
In 1992 a Japanese history professor found documents that proved that the Japanese military forces had operated ‘comfort stations’. These findings were published in various newspapers and the government admitted its involvement.
In 1997 the 105th Congress drafted and submitted a resolution ordering the Government of Japan to formally issue an apology for its war crimes and immediately pay reparations to victims.
