Honoring the Survivors: Korea and Japan Settle Dispute Over Comfort Women Issue

 

                        The Glendale Comfort Women Peace Monument


Korea and Japan have resolved their dispute over the "Comfort Women" issue.   As part of the resolution, Japan offered a public apology and a one-billion yen ($8.3 million) compensation to Korean women who were forced to work in Japanese brothels during WWII. 


KALAGNY has played an integral part in the ongoing open discussion about this atrocity faced by the "Comfort Women." We hope to educate our members and our community  so as to prevent any like incidents from arising in the future.
