RE: 2014-2016 Draft History-Social Science Framework

Chapter 15: Grade Ten – World History, Culture, and Geography: The Modern World Chapter of the History-Social Science Framework for California Public Schools
Page 469. Lines 913~919: “Comfort Women,” a euphemism for sexual … into these situations during Japanese occupation.”

My comments:
As the education of children is highly important, it is crucial that history be taught in a fair, neutral, and fact-based way. Please consider the following points. Scholars in South Korea and Japan have confirmed the most Korean comfort women were recruited by civilians (not the Japanese Army), indentured for defined terms, and were allowed to return home [Refs at http://goo.gl/9xM3LL]. Destitute families sent their daughters in exchange for payment, or poverty-stricken women joined of their own accord, possibly after being deceived about the nature of the work by the civilian recruiters. As such, their situation was very different from slavery of antebellum America.

At schools, please teach accurate history as follows:
“Comfort Women” were women who were indentured to work at civilian-owned brothels that accompanied Japanese military units in occupied territories before and during the war. The women came from poor rural families, and many may have been deceived by civilian recruiters, who promised work at hospitals and factories, but instead took the women to brothels. The women could go home after a defined period of time.

Thank you

RE: 2014-2016 Draft History-Social Science Framework for Grade Ten

Chapter 15: Grade Ten – World History, Culture, and Geography: The Modern World Chapter of the History-Social Science Framework for California Public Schools. Page 469. Lines 913 ~ 919: “Comfort Women,” a euphemism for sexual ~~~ forced into these situations during Japanese occupation.

My comments are:
The history of comfort women is highly disputed between the nations of S. Korea and Japan. Many facts have become distorted and exaggerated by anti-Japanese activists. Reputable South Korean-born professors, Yu-ha Park (http://goo.gl/uSWM44) and C. Sarah Soh (http://goo.gl/C83b8C), who interviewed Korean comfort women and researched the subject in great detail, report that most Korean comfort women were recruited by civilians, that most worked at civilian-owned brothels, that many were paid (or their families had been paid), and that the women could return home when they served a certain number of years or fulfilled their indenture. Dishonest civilian recruiters deceived the women. The research by these professors indicate that, in Korea, comfort women were NOT systematically abducted by Japanese Imperial Army. Some instances of forcible recruitment did occur in territory Japan occupied during the war, but were committed by rogue soldiers acting illicitly. Unfortunately, these cases have been inappropriately generalized to all comfort women. Historically, other nations’ militaries have used indentured prostitutes, and it is unfair to target just Japan. When only one group is selectively targeted, it is “profiling” and, thus, wrong.

I humbly request that educators carefully investigate the facts before teaching inaccurate history in public schools. Historical evidence indicates: In the early 1900s, many people in Korea and Japan lived in dire poverty. The vast majority of Korean comfort women had been sent by their parents in exchange for advance payment or joined on their own, driven by poverty and the patriarchal nature of Korean society, where daughters were often under-appreciated and given little autonomy. The brokers who recruited Korean comfort women were civilians, and many were Korean men; dishonest brokers deceived the women. The Japanese military did NOT systematically dragoon young Korean girls and women.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Your name

RE: 2014-2016 Draft History-Social Science Framework for Grade Ten
To : The State Board of Education Members,
The History–Social Science Subject Matter Committee of the Instructional Quality Commission Members

Chapter 15: Grade Ten – World History, Culture, and Geography: The Modern World Chapter of the History-Social Science Framework for California Public Schools. Page 469. Lines 913 ~ 919: “Comfort Women,” a euphemism for sexual ~~~ forced into these situations during Japanese occupation.

The history of comfort women is highly disputed between the nations of S. Korea and Japan, and hyperboles abound. As the education of children is important, it is essential that all claims are carefully confirmed before teaching them as uncontested facts. Please consider the following points:

(1) Lines 917-919: “most argue that hundreds of thousands of women were forced into these situations during Japanese occupation.” EVIDENCE BASED FINDINGS: All historians and scholars agree that the exact number of comfort women is uncertain [Refs. 1,2]. However, estimates by scholars who conduct research on this topic range typically in the tens of thousands [Refs. 1,3]. Although “most” activists and politically-based groups claim the number is “hundreds of thousands,” reputable scholars generally do not state such a high number.

(2) Lines 913-915. “‘Comfort Women,’ a euphemism for sexual slaves, were taken by the Japanese Army in occupied territories before and during the war.” FINDINGS: Scholars and researchers have confirmed the most Korean comfort women were recruited by civilians (not the Japanese Army), served for defined periods of time, were often paid (or their families paid), and were allowed to return home. [Refs 1-4] As such, many scholars explicitly do not use the expression “sexual slavery”, as it would be misleading. The expression “sexual slaves” was popularized by, inter alia, lawyers filing lawsuits, activists, politicians, and journalists conveying what others said, and thus now permeates the Internet and media.

(3) Lines 915-917. “‘Comfort Women’ can be taught as an example of institutionalized sexual slavery, and one of the largest cases of human trafficking in the twentieth century.” EVIDENCE BASED FINDINGS: As the number of comfort women is uncertain (see above), it would be inappropriate to claim outright that it is “one of the largest cases of human trafficking” of the last century. Again, many neutral scholars explicitly avoid the expression “sexual slavery”, as it would be misleading. A small fraction of comfort women in territories Japan occupied during the war (e.g., Indonesia) were forcibly acquired by local military personnel, but this was done by soldiers acting independently [Ref. 1]. The women were freed after about two months when a higher ranking officer discovered the situation, and the personnel responsible were later punished.

Few things are more important than children’s education, and it is crucial that history be taught in a fair, neutral, and fact-based way. The tragic results of history being taught in a biased way can be seen in the Middle East, where past misdeeds are often exaggerated and only one side’s version of events is presented. We urge that the proposed additions (lines 913-919) be shelved until their veracity is confirmed/disproved in a neutral and unbiased way, e.g., by consulting scholars who have conducted in-person research in this field, such as Prof. C. Sarah Soh (San Francisco State University), and Prof. Yuha Park (Sejong University, S. Korea), and Prof. George Akita (University of Hawaii).

    カリフォルニア州の青少年に、嘘の歴史を教えないでください。アメリカ合衆国の国立公文書図書館には、1943年、1944年などにアメリカ軍が実際に捕虜にした慰安婦の供述が保存されています。慰安婦が高級売春婦であった証拠です。カリフォルニア州は、こうしたアメリカ合衆国の調査結果を無視するのですか?

    You should create English ver of this website too.
    To get more supports from FOREIGN COUNTRIES, you do need to explain more details and provide them the prooves to support your opinion.
    Defnitely, you need Eng ver website at least.
    Eng ver, Spanish ver, French ver and Chinese ver.
    This topic has to be an international issue and also women rights.
    日本だけが賠償金払ったり、謝ったりするのは本当におかしい。
    被害者は日本人ですね。。We are the victims.


  6. Nabe says:

    Dear California state staff.

    Why do you believe lair Koreans ?
    They are just professional prostitute.
    Because they got more much money than Japanese soldiers. When the Korean prostitute work only three months, they could buy a house. They are not sex slave. They are just lair.
