90-Year-Old Ex-Sex Slave Lee Yong-Soo
The former comfort woman Lee Yong-Soo, 90, poses with a statue a young girl dedicated to the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery in a public library's park in Glendale, California, in the US on May 6, 2015.

The bronze statue is a replica of "Statue of a Girl (comfort woman)" set up in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul.

She was on the victims of the Japan's war-time sexual slavery forced to serve the Japanese soldiers during the Pacific War.

The 90-year-old survivor of the sexual slavery was taken by the Japanese to become a comfort woman at the age of 16 in 1944.

She suffered from violences and tortures by the Japanese while she was forced to work as a sex slave for the Japanese soldiers in Japanese occupied areas of China.

She was able to come back to South Korean in 1945 when Korea was liberated from Japanese colonial yoke at the end of the Pacific War.

She came out to the public in 1992 to reveal her sufferings as a ex-sex slave. Since then she has been very active in improving human rights for the women.

In 2016 the resident of Daegu was honored with a human rights award called "Aesan Human Rights Award" for her contribution to the improvement of the human rights for the women.
