Eighty-three-year-old Estelita Dy and her supporters met in Tokyo on Sunday as part of events to commemorate the day the first sex slave victim came forward in South Korea on Aug. 14, 1991.
The group is trying to promote international support to register Aug. 14 as an official U.N. memorial day, to pressure Japan to do more to take responsibility for wartime sex slavery.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has backpedaled from Tokyo’s past apologies, saying there’s no proof Japan’s wartime government coerced women into prostitution for the army.
Historians say there were as many as 200,000 sex slaves, mostly Koreans.
