Ahn Sehong of the Juju Project has been taken photos based on the theme of ‘Comfort Women’, referring to ‘women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during the Second World War’, since 1990s and displayed the Korean ‘Comfort Women’ left in China for the first time in Seoul.
Ahn Sehong started to bring such a sensitive matter and its related issues to the public based upon his experiences of working with those victimised women. This led him to establish The Juju Project in order to work for their rights systematically. It came to us in a concrete plan in 2011 when his lecture-exhibitions on the subject were drawn special attentions to the public around in Japan. Many people shared their concerns with him after attending his exhibition, and they determined to support his forthcoming plans that he wanted to develop further the issues.
