Continuing Denial of the Victimization of Women : Japan’s military sex slaves in World War II

01/06/2016 | 14h00-16h00

- Dans le cadre du groupe de recherche Réflexion sur la violence de masse du CERI
- En partenariat avec le Centre d’Histoire de Sciences Po et le programme PRESAGE-OFCE

Avec :

-  Yuki Tanaka, Research Professor, Hiroshima Peace Institute, Hiroshima City University

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.
