Wider Image: "Comfort Woman" Survivors Tell Their Stories
Zhang Shuangbing, an independent researcher about Chinese "comfort women" during World War Two, bows at the tomb of Liu Mianhuan after showing it to reporters at a mountain in Xiyan Town, Shanxi Province, China, July 18, 2015. “Comfort women� is the Japanese euphemism for women who were forced into prostitution and sexually abused at Japanese military brothels before and during World War Two. Visiting the tomb of Liu, Zhang Shuangbing said aloud "It's me again. We didn't have enough power to win a lawsuit yet. I will come again to tell you when we win it", referring to the lawsuit that the 16 plaintiffs in Shanxi raised against the Japanese government in 1995 for abducting girls and using them as "comfort women" during World War Two. Liu, who died three years ago, was abducted by Japanese soldiers when she was 15 and was forced to serve as a "comfort woman" for over 40 days during World War Two, according to Zhang Shuangbing and based on Liu's own statement.
