U.S. webinar on 'comfort women'

U.S. webinar on 'comfort women'

Roh Jeong-ho (bottom, L), head of the Center for Korean Legal Studies at Columbia Law School, expresses his concern over Harvard professor Mark Ramseyer's paper during the center's webinar on Feb. 22, 2021, under the theme of "Wartime Legacies: Korean, Japanese and U.S. Perspectives on Recent Court Cases on the Comfort Women," in this photo captured from the Zoom meeting. In the paper titled "Contracting For Sex In The Pacific War," Ramseyer claimed that comfort women were not sex slaves but prostitutes who voluntarily worked in Japanese military brothels. Comfort women refer to around 200,000 Asian women, mostly Koreans, who were forcibly taken to front-line military brothels by the Japanese army during World War II.
