Comfort Woman

So much modern art is meaningless junk that it is refeshing to find a sculpture that has real meaning, even though it is sad. The beautiful face of this Comfort Woman Memorial in Glendale's Central Park, California, represents the many women who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese during World War II. Of course this meaning is too much for some people, presumably Japanese. They went to law to have the memorial removed. The ruling by US District Judge Percy Anderson last August was that the memorial should stay, because it caused no harm to the plaintiffs nor broke any law. The plaintiffs will appeal.
