Yesterday’s post, Mayer Brown, shame on you. (日本、ストライサンド効果へようこそ), might come into better focus (if you need it) if you watch this video.
These are the women that the lawsuit referred to like this:
During World War II and the decade leading up to it, an unknown number of women from Japan, Korea, China, and a number of nations in Southeast Asia, were recruited, employed, and/or otherwise acted as sexual partners for troops of the Japanese Empire in various parts of the Pacific Theater of war. These women are often referred to as comfort women, a loose translation of the Japanese word for prostitute. (Complaint at Para. 14) (emphasis added)
“or otherwise acted as sexual partners”
