During the Asia-Pacific War, the Japanese military forced hundreds of thousands of women across Asia into ""comfort stations"" where they were repeatedly raped and tortured. Japanese imperial forces claimed they recruited women to join these stations in order to prevent the mass rape of local women and the spread of venereal disease among soldiers. In reality, these women were kidnapped and coerced into sexual slavery. Comfort stations institutionalized rape, and these ""comfort women"" were subjected to atrocities that have only recently become the subject of international debate. Chinese Com
