A Comfort Women Legacy



These women in Indonesia were able to avoid being raped and taken to become Comfort Women because their matriarchal tribe understood what the invading Japanese wanted and what they were fearful of. Thus, as young girls they were painfully and extensively tattooed to give the impression that they were already taken, married. The Japanese did not question why such young girls were already married. So much history here.
