A History of Trauma--The Comfort Women "Comfort Women," a term that most people might have heard of but have no idea of the bloody stories behind it. Although few forced comfort women are still alive, what this event has revealed to us should not be ignored: the way that women were tourtured and hurt.

We appreciate Ms. Bee-Ching Chang and other members of Taipei Women Rescue Foundation offering us the following invaluable information on comfort women. Through the lens of these reports and articles, we wish everyone understand the background of the Fund-Raising Campaign rasied by the Taipei Women Rescue Foundation, and the belief we hold that supports this movement.

Recently the Taipei Women Rescue Foundation has released a documentary film on their interview with the Taiwanese Comfort Women. They welcome organizations who are interested in this issue to contact them to view this documentary film.
