Join Harvard APALSA for a roundtable discussion on the ongoing “comfort women” issue, featuring speakers who have been directly involved in the U.S., across various disciplines, in a joint effort to seek justice for the “comfort women” survivors. The discussion will focus on the grassroots movement around the “comfort women” issue and the ways in which human rights, women’s rights, and grassroots activists in the U.S. have played an instrumental role in the passage of H.Res.121 (also known as the “comfort women” resolution) in 2007 and in the establishment of “comfort women” memorials across the U.S. Through engaging directly with the speakers, students and attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the grassroots effort undertaken to remember the deep pain and suffering of hundreds of thousands of women and girls who were coerced into Japanese wartime sexual slavery, and to ensure that such war crimes and atrocities will not be repeated. Please note that this event is open to the public and will be streamed live on Facebook.
