Wider Image: "Comfort Woman" Survivors Tell Their Stories
South Korean former "comfort woman" Gil Won-ok sits in her room at the "Our Home" shelter for former "comfort women" in Seoul, South Korea, July 23, 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. The shelter is run by an NGO. 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 and a Japanese military doctor removed her uterus leaving her unable to bear children. Gil said she wants to receive an apology from the Japanese government.
