The stories of Filipina ‘comfort women’

It’s been 67 years since the end of World War II, but its shadows still haunt those who survived it.

Al Jazeera first reported the story of the so-called “comfort women” 5 years ago.

Now as part of our “What Happened Next” series, Marga Ortigas revisited some of the women, who are still waiting for justice in the Philipine capital.
