The War and Women’s Human Rights Museum is an open space to remember ‘Comfort Women’s history, to educate people, and to tackle the Japanese military sexual slavery issue. It is also an active museum that attempts to make the world a place without war and violence against women by collaborating in solidarity with other organizations.
The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan was founded in 1990, launched the Steering Committee of Historical Museum as a stepstone in 1994, and set up the Education Center for ‘Comfort Women’s history so that the solidarity was begun between the victims and future generations in 1999.
The Korean Council launched the Steering Committee of War and Women’s Human Rights Museum formally in 2004. It was a beginning of a journey with hope to build a museum for recovering victim’s honor, and for human rights & peace to leave future generations.
