"The Comfort Woman

Introduction:
In the United States, people tend to think of race as the primary factor in discordant human relations. In particular, the divide between black and white Americans is seen as a central one, with historical antecedent and difficult prospects for the future. In other regions of the world, however, ethnicity, religion, and tribal background are equally divisive factors.

In thinking about Japan and Korea, and the development of the comfort woman concept, ethnicity is an important factor. Although gender is the most salient factor, ethnicity also probably plays a role in the horrific nature of the Japanese enslavement of the Korean women."
