‘One comfort woman for every 70 soldiers’, Japanese records show

The 1993 report named after then-Chief Cabinet Secretary Yohei Kono details how women were forced to work in brothels.

“From the latest document … we got detailed information on the operation of the brothels – how many soldiers were so-called assigned to a comfort woman,” said Yoon Mi-hyang, head of the Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan.

“This is a clear sign that the Japanese government is accountable for forcefully recruiting Korean women for sexual enslavement.”
