Comfort Women

Representing our Korean identity is an essential mission in Hwarang. Despite international efforts to spread awareness of the tragic history behind the Comfort Women, there are still many individuals that remain unaware of such events. As community leaders, we are passionate about spreading awareness of Comfort Women. Comfort Women were the Korean women who suffered as they were slaves sexually at concentration camps by the Japanese government during World War II. By spreading awareness of Comfort Women, we were able to help establish a Comfort Women gallery in the Glendale Library.
