Ep.131 The global impact of Harvard professor’s ‘comfort women’ journal

The controversy stemming from Harvard Law School Professor Ramseyer’s academic journal on comfort women is snowballing every day. The U.S. State Department called the Japanese military’s wartime comfort women issue an egregious violation of human rights. Meanwhile, China slammed Ramseyer’s claims by stressing that the forced recruitment of comfort women is a “grave crime“ against humanity. Over 1,000 scholars and researchers who study the issue of comfort women announced a statement to criticize professor Ramseyer for making sexist and colonialistic remarks, such as the claim that ”comfort women were prostitutes.” We discuss with experts the activities currently underway to respond to the Harvard professor’s attempt at historical distortion and denialism.
