Kim Sook-ja, 70, cries whilst recalling her life as a prostitute serving U.S. military personnel stationed in South Korea, in Pyeongtaek July 11, 2014. On June 25, sixty-four years after the Korean War broke out, 122 surviving comfort women, as they were called, filed a lawsuit against their government to reclaim, they say, human dignity and proper compensation. The women claim the South Korean government trained them and worked with pimps to run a sex trade through the 1960s and 1970s for U.S. troops, encouraged women to work as prostitutes and violated their human rights.
