A Tokyo-based museum that focuses on issues involving wartime sexual violence against females has compiled a guidebook on its counterparts around Asia in an effort to have more of the victims heard.

Among the facilities covered is the Chinese Comfort Women History Museum, located at Shanghai Normal University, which focuses on Chinese victims forced to work in Japanese military brothels. The museum also serves as an institution for history education in cooperation with local schools and citizens.

The guidebook, issued by the Women's Active Museum on War and Peace, or WAM, located in Shinjuku Ward, provides background on the establishment of each museum in English and Japanese and what they exhibit. Business hours, admission fees and other information are provided for the nine museums featured.
