March 8, 2015 – “Former ‘comfort women’ ready to sue Japan in U.S.” (Japan Times)

A group of women in South Korea and the United States are preparing to sue the Japanese government, claiming their human rights were breached when they were forced to become “comfort women,” those who were forced to provide sex for Imperial Japanese troops before and during the war. The lawsuit will likely be filed with a district court in San Francisco by the end the month, sources close to the women said Saturday.”
