CGS (Center for Gender Studies, ICU) would like to express strong oppositions to a series of remarks given by Toru Hashimoto, a co-representative of Japan Reformation Party and the Mayor of the City of Osaka, on "comfort women (sex slaves)" during World War II and sex industry in Okinawa since May 13, 2013, as well as to other remarks by his political colleagues supporting him. We regard these remarks are the insults to the dignity of all human beings, especially of women in neighboring Asian countries and Okinawa.
