Comfort Women Book Talk Flyer March 20 2021

On Saturday, March 20, 2021, we hosted a virtual book talk for the recent publication of Korean "Comfort Women": Military Brothels, Brutality, and the Redress Movement by Pyong Gap Min, the director of our research center and Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Queens College and the Graduate Center of CUNY. This important monograph was published by Rutgers University Press, and it is available in paperback, hardcover, and E-Book.

This book is significant because it is the only English-language book that examines both the "comfort women" issue and the redress movement for the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery comprehensively. It examines not only their forced mobilization to and brutal experiences at Japanese military brothels, but also their post-war hardships in returning home and their suffering in Korea for a half century. It also covers the redress movement in Korea, Japan, and the United States in detail. This book is also important because it is related to several social science disciplines. 

This event was co-hosted by RCKC and Open Forum Korea and sponsored by The Research Foundation for Korean Community (RFKC), the Korean American Association of Greater New York (KAAGNY), and the National Unification Advisory Council, New York Chapter.
