The city of Seoul announced Wednesday that it will build a monument to the suffering of women forced to work in Japanese military brothels during the war as part of the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule.

A committee for the promotion of the project will be set up jointly with groups such as the Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan, a South Korean group supporting those women, euphemistically known as “comfort women,” according to the city.
