The Japanese Comfort Women and Sexual Slavery During the China and Pacific Wars - Caroline Norma
Play • 37 min

Caroline Norma is Lecturer at the School of Global Studies, Social Science and Planning at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. Her 2015 book, The Japanese Comfort Women and Sexual Slavery During the China and Pacific Wars explores the origins of the Japanese military's system of sexual slavery and illustrates how Japanese women were its initial victims. Campaigns for justice and reparations for 'comfort women' since the early 1990s have highlighted the magnitude of the human rights crimes committed against Korean, Chinese and other Asian women by Japanese soldiers after they invaded the Chinese mainland in 1937. These campaigns, however, say little about the origins of the system or its initial victims.
