Yumiko Yamamoto, President of Nadeshiko Action attends a press conference at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan on July 9, 2014. Yamamoto explained her belief that what many people now refer to as comfort women were not in fact sex slaves. Instead she argues that the women were actually paid prostitutes who volunteered to work for the Japanese Army. As President of Nadeshiko and the organization of Japanese Women for Justice, Yamamoto will attend the next session of the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva starting on July 14th 2014 where the issue of wartime comfort women will be addressed.
