To Our Sisters in Korea: Your Struggle is Our Struggle!

 

The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for the Military Sexual Slavery by Japan has invited Neema to join them in Seoul, South Korea on August 13-15 in Commemorating the First International Memorial Day for the ‘Comfort Women,’ who were drafted into sexual slavery by Japan’s military.

Forced into sexual slavery in order to “comfort” the soldiers, the women were repeatedly raped. Although they are now in their 80s and 90s, they continue to demand that the Japanese government take accountability and declare sexual violence as a war crime. They have not given up their fight for a formal apology and acknowledgement from the Japanese government. They are an inspiration to us all.

 

Our South Korean Hero Women want to band with the Hero Women of Congo in a unified stand to end sexual violence against women as a strategic weapon of war the world over.

Please view our video of the Maman Shujaa Hero Women offering support and solidarity to the South Korean Hero Women:
