September 25, 2013, Comfort Women Wanted, Columbia University.

“Comfort Women Wanted” brings to light the memory of 200,000 young women, referred to as “comfort women,” who were systematically exploited as sex slaves in Asia during World War II, and increases awareness of sexual violence against women during wartime. The military comfort women system is considered the largest case of human trafficking in the 20th century. The video is based on visual artist Chang-Jin Lee‟s interviews with Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Dutch, and Filipino “comfort women” survivors, and a former Japanese soldier. It attempts to create a constructive dialogue for the future by acknowledging their place in history.
