This is not an official meetup for our group (it's being organized separately), but I'm posting it here because I think it will be of interest to many of our members. Layne Hartsell is hosting; you may RSVP here or contact him directly (see below).
NOTICE: Your RSVP is only valid once you've transferred the fee (see below).
Sex, Slavery and Militarism
The issue of Japanese Imperial (and global) wartime sexual slavery has been a major issue between Korea and Japan, especially since the Halmoni (grandmothers) began speaking out in the early 1990's. Dr. Shin Hei Soo has been at the forefront of the steady progress which has been made, acting as the Commissioner on National Human Rights in Korea, Convener of the World Conference on Womens Human Rights, and acting as a Representative on the National Movement on the Elimination of Sex Trafficking.
Shin Hei Soo is the special UN Advisor to the Secretary General, and is a professor at Ewha Womens University, Graduate School of International Studies. Seoul, South Korea
