Born in Daegu, Korea in 1928 under Japanese occupation, Lee Yong-soo was taken away from her home at the age of 14 by the Imperial Japanese Army and forced into sexual slavery on the front lines of the Pacific Theater in World War II. She is now one of 11 remaining known “comfort women” survivors in Korea out of a system that claimed more than 200,000 women and girls from Japanese-occupied territories throughout Asia from 1932 to 1945. Lee Yong-soo continues to fight for justice for a crime the Japanese government continues to deny and suppress.
