Wider Image: "Comfort Woman" Survivors Tell Their Stories
Former Chinese "comfort woman" Hao Yuelian sits on her bed under pictures of babies at her house in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, China, July 16, 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. Her adopted daughter explained that the biggest scar of her life was her lost fertility, something her family considers is related to what happened to Hao during World War Two. Losing her fertility is the biggest regret of her life so she puts up posters of babies in her room to sooth herself. According to the information from China’s Commission of Inquiry into the Facts of Comfort Women being Victims, which is based on her own statement during the commission's research, Hao was abducted by Japanese soldiers at 17 and was forced to serve as a "comfort woman" for over 20 days during World War Two.
