Chinese Comfort Women

Click to order book
Among the thousands of girls, women, and boys swept up in Imperial Japan's Comfort Women system were Chinese. Some were part of expropriated brothels, some trafficked by brokers who paid their parent's debts, but most were victims of victory.

This subject will be explored in Washington, DC, October 21-22 through a series of presentations by Dr. Peipei Qiu, Louise Boyd Dale and Alfred Lichtenstein Professor of Chinese and Japanese and Director of Asian Studies Program at Vassar College who is a co-author of Chinese Comfort Women: Testimonies from Imperial Japan’s Sex Slaves.
