Sung Sohn attended the 7th anniversary of Glendale “Comfort Women” Day opening reception on Saturday, July 28 at 5 pm at Downtown Central Library Auditorium. The 7th anniversary kicked off with the “Do the Right Thing: Comfort Women Resist” exhibition in Downtown Central Library. The exhibition continues until Sept 11, 2018. This year’s exhibit explores WWII Asian “Comfort Women” narratives of survival and resistance to denial. Approximately 500 guests joined the celebration, at which Sung Sohn made a presentation on continuing efforts to address the sidelined history of Japanese military sex slaves in the San Francisco Bay Area. Chang-Yup Lee, Glendale City Planning Commissioner, who played a major role in the installation of the Glendale “Comfort Women” Memorial, has helped to plan for the event.
