2019: War, Rape and Patriarchy: The Japanese experience

"Trostfrauen" des 2. Welltkrieges - "Comfort Women"

War, Rape and Patriarchy: The Japanese experience

Yuki Tanaka

By analysing how all wars affect women and examining the approach to sexual violence taken by the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal, this article attempts to locate issues of the "comfort women" in international perspective, to examine intellectual foundations for the study of war, and the role of rape in Japan's China war in particular. The article further explores the role of the military and the Japanese state in establishing and controlling the comfort women system in the course of the Asia-Pacific War.
