Comfort Women are the women and young girls who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese imperial army before and during WWII. Most of the women were from occupied countries in Korea, China and the Philippines as well as some other occupied territories. The exact victim count is unknown but it estimates to as high as 410,000.
This is a folding screen hand made with wood, fabric and painted on with gesso and oil paint. See other photos for how it folds. It is free standing and has a front and back side.
The back has the names of the recorded comfort women survivors who were brave enough to come forward. Most are passed away now.
