New comfort women statue will be built in NY state

A monument remembering the suffering of thousands of women drafted into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during World War II has been built in the U.S. state of New York.
Resolutions from both the New York State Senate and the New York House are engraved on the statue,… helping to remember the victims who suffered.
Officials say an opening ceremony will be held on Friday.
Last Friday, U.S. President Barack Obama has signed into a federal spending bill that includes a provision on Japan's wartime sexual enslavement.
The bill cites a 2007 resolution, asking for the Japanese government to address the issue of the so-called "comfort women," mainly from Korea and China, who were forced into sexual servitude for Japanese soldiers during World War II.
