Summary

  • "The Women's International War Crimes Tribunal held in Tokyo, Japan on 8-12 Dec. 2000 was a Peoples' Tribunal set up to bring those responsible for Japan's military sexual violence, in particular the enslavement of 'comfort women,' to justice and to end the ongoing cycle of impunity for wartime violence against women. A revolutionary tribunal representing people from all across Asia, it was the first of its kind to break Japan's post-war taboo by finding the emperor guilty of war crimes during WWII"--Container.
