- In Flushing (go figure!), a street will be named in honor of the Comfort Women. And they’ll get a Comfort Women memorial, too.
- One place that won’t be getting a Comfort Women memorial is Singapore:
Singapore said on Wednesday it has rejected plans by South Korean activists to erect a statue in the city-state commemorating women forced into sexual slavery by Japan during World War II.
The culture ministry denied claims by the Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery that there had been talks about plans to put up such a statue.
“There are no ongoing meetings or discussions between the Singapore government and the Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery on this issue. Nor will we allow such a statue to be erected in Singapore.”
