Continuing Denial of the Victimization of Women: Japan’s military sex slaves in World War II
Yuki Tanaka, Research Professor, Hiroshima Peace Institute, Hiroshima City University
Mercredi 1 juin | 14h00
56, rue Jacob 75006 Paris (salle de conférences)
Dans le cadre du groupe de recherche Réflexion sur la violence de masse du CERI
Yuki Tanaka will describe the systematic sexual enslavement of women (the so called “comfort women system”) that was operated in Asia by the Japanese Imperial Forces during the Asia-Pacific War between 1931 and 1945. He will examine the distinctive characteristics of this system, comparing it with violence against women committed by forces of other nations, such as Germany and the U.S. during World War II and the post-war occupation period. He will also discuss the history of the movement that denies the existence of the Japanese military sex slave system and examine its roots in gender relations.
