In the seminar titled “Post- and Decolonial Feminisms in Southeast Asia from a Transregional Perspective” we focus on the “Comfort Women” movement, which is considered one of the most successful anti-colonial feminist movements. Prof. Dr. Lee Na-Young is teaching at the University of Choong Ang and is the president of the Korean Council for Justice and Remembrance of Issues for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan. She has committed to the topic not only as a scholar but also as an activist.
