In addition, they worked and earned for families, instead of their parents. such as whether "forced"?

For too long, Japanese people have denied that the 'comfort women' were forced into sexual slavery.

They claim that these women were voluntary, paid prostitutes.

The average survivor is now over 85 years old, which means that in the early 1940s, they were no more than about 15 years of age.

This video shows the testimony of victims from around the world.

If someone can please make a Japanese subbed version, I would be very grateful.
