Wider Image: "Comfort Woman" Survivors Tell Their Stories
South Korean former "comfort woman" Gil Won-ok is helped by a volunteer as she heads to the weekly Wednesday protest demanding an apology and compensation from the Japanese government in Seoul, South Korea, July 22, 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. According to her testimony to South Korean researchers, Gil, who was born in what is now North Korea in 1927, was taken to a Japanese military brothel in China in 1940. She caught syphilis and developed tumours as she worked as a "comfort woman". A Japanese military doctor removed her uterus leaving her unable to bear children. Gil said she wants to receive apology from Japanese government.
