The Lolas of LILA Pilipina

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

From M. Evelina Galang’s blog, “Laban! Fight For Comfort Women:

Lola is the Tagalog word for grandmother. And on Matimtiman Street in Quezon City, Philippines, Lolas’ House is a community center for a special kind of grandmother. The women of Lolas’ House are survivors of WWII. In South East Asia, 200, 000 young women were taken hostage by Japanese soldiers to serve as military sex slaves. The Japanese called them Comfort Women.
