Korean "Comfort Women" is a euphemism from a Japanese term to refer to women and girls who were forced into sexual slavery during World War II. This often forgotten and important issue has been the source of international controversy between South Korea, Japan, and the world community. During this event, there will be a showing of a film entitled Spirits Homecoming, Unfinished Story from JO Entertainment. Following the film, there will be a discussion led by Ms. Sinmin Pak, an advocate for the women and girls who were forced into sexual slavery and their families. She is the founder of "Unforgotten Butterflies," a group devoted to bringing awareness to this often lost and important issue.
