Sept 29, 2018: (Title Continued: an uncorrected outrage with sex trafficking to this day, shouts for rectification!) Sinmin Pak, a strong advocate for women’s rights, will discuss “Comfort Women” who were victims of Japanese military sexual slavery. She estimates that as many as 200,000 young girls were trafficked from all over Asia to serve as sex slaves to the Japanese Imperial Army during WWII, and included were German females, Dutch females, and American POW nurses, who were also forced to become “Comfort Women”. Sinmin advises that in Korea, currently there are only 27 living survivors, average age in 90s.still fighting to regain dignity and justice. She argues that the Japanese government still refuses to acknowledge “Comfort Women” were forced. Instead they claim “Comfort Women” were “prostitutes” and “willing participants”. Sinmin contends that this issue is still relevant, as sex trafficking is still happening. She argues that it was wrong back then, wrong now, and wrong in the future under any circumstances. Sinmin concludes that a strong word has to go out for Japan to acknowledge and give a sincere and unequivocal apology to the “Comfort Women”, as to effect a genuine first step in the reduction and elimination of sex trafficking.
