Comfort Women Wanted
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust

Wood Street Galleries, third floor

The exhibition opening event (November 1, 5:30–8 p.m.) features an artist talk with Korean-born, New York-based visual artist Chang-Jin Lee.

Lee’s exhibition Comfort Women Wanted exposes the fates of nearly 200,000 young women who were exploited as sex slaves by the Imperial Japanese Army in Asia during World War II. The artist uses the remembrance of these “comfort women”—some of whom are still alive today—to increase awareness of sexual violence against women during wartime.
