Japan has protested that the special ‘comfort women’ exhibition is driven by political cause;however, the Angoulme committee announced that the exhibition is neither about Korea nor Japan, it is simply about the ‘History and memoir’.

This year marks 100th after the broke-out of World War1. Angoulme Comic Festival 2014 features many exhibits related to the World War1 and Women’s right issues.
