Tokyo Trial Will Address War Crimes Against Women

The first trials that focus specifically on war crimes committed against women during World War II will be held by the Women’s International War Crimes Tribunal in Tokyo in December. The group’s spokesperson, Yayori Matsui, said the event, which was made possible by the Violence Against Women in War-Japan’s Women’s Network (VAWW-NET), will clarify Japan’s responsibility for sexual violence committed by imperial troops during the war.
