Statues of so-called 'comfort women' forced into sex slavery during World War 2 have been placed in buses in South Korea as reminders of their suffering. Though such statues appear elsewhere in the country, the 2017 public transport initiative commemorated independence from Japan's 1910-45 occupation. Some 200,000 women from across Korea, Taiwan, China and the Philippines are thought to have been forced to service Japanese soldiers. They were beaten and subjected to multiple rapes on a daily basis.
