Wider Image: "Comfort Woman" Survivors Tell Their Stories
Chinese former "comfort woman" Hao Yuelian, whose eye is affected by cataract, passes the time 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. Hao Yuelian avoids watching TV dramas and movies about the war, especially when the Japanese soldiers appear on screen. She gets scared and turns away from the television, Hao and her family told Reuters. According to 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 the age of 17 and was forced to serve as a "comfort woman" for over 20 days during World War Two.
