Summary
"Accountability and redress for Imperial Japan's wartime "comfort women" have provoked international debate in the past two decades. Yet there has been a dearth of first-hand accounts available in English from the women abducted and enslaved by the Japanese military in Mainland China -- the major theatre of the Asia-Pacific War. Chinese Comfort Women features the personal stories of the survivors of this devastating system of sexual enslavement. Offering insight into the conditions of these women's lives prior to and after the war, it points to the social, cultural, and political environments that prolonged their suffering. Through personal narratives from twelve Chinese "comfort station" survivors, this book reveals the unfathomable atrocities committed against women during the war and correlates the proliferation of "comfort stations" with the progression of Japan's military offensive. Drawing on investigative reports, local histories, and witness testimony, Chinese Comfort Women puts a human face on China's war experience and on the injustices suffered by hundreds of thousands of Chinese women." -- Publisher's website
