Summary From 1932 to 1945, the Japanese military forced hundreds of thousands of women across Asia into "comfort stations" where they were repeatedly raped and tortured. This volume features the personal narratives of twelve women who were kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery. In exposing previously hidden aspects of the system, it also exposes the full extent of the injustices suffered by these women, and the conditions that caused them.
