“Welcome to the War and Women’s Human Rights Museum.”


The War and Women’s Human Rights Museum remembers and educates the history of Japanese military “comfort women” and works towards just resolution of the Japanese military sexual slavery issue. It is also an active museum that attends to ongoing issues of sexual violence in armed conflicts and stands in solidarity for a world without war and violence against women.


Japanese military “comfort women” victim-survivors’ longstanding hope for children to grow up in a safe and peaceful world resonated with citizens around the globe and sparked fundraising efforts. After a long journey, the War and Women’s Human Rights Museum opened on Childrens’ Day, May 5th, 2012 as a space for future generations and citizens.


The War and Women’s Human Rights Museum strives to create a better world for future generations by raising awareness of past history and memory through various exhibitions and educational programs and recording ongoing activism for women, human rights, and peace.


We ask for your continuous interest and participation in the War and Women’s Human Rights Museum, which aims to be an international platform for transnational citizens’ solidarity, education of future generations, memory and archiving.


Thank you.
