Q.What is comfort women for the Japanese military?
A.The term “comfort women”is a euphemism for the young women who were forcefully recruited from old colonies (i.e. Korea and Taiwan) and occupied countries (i.e. China, the Philippines, and Indonesia), and served as sex slaves against their own will during World War ?.
The Japanese military and governmental officials and private operators deceived, lured and kidnapped as many as 200,000 girls and women into forced sexual slavery throughout its colonies and occupied territories.http://www.hermuseum.go.kr/eng/sub01/sub0102.asp
