Comfort Women in China during World War II World War II was one of the most brutal and destructive wars of all time. Millions of lives were lost, and countless lives were taken by means other than death. Hundreds of thousands Asian women were forced into sex slavery during World War II by the Japanese military. Many were coerced with promises of factory jobs and expensive gifts; however, other women were kidnapped off the streets or sold by their families as teenagers. The women suffered inhumane treatment and often were killed from repeated sexual abuse or abortions.
She had been separated from her mother who was a single parent. The play shows a number of women penitents from 1963. These women were all in the asylum because they were victims of sexual abuse or single mothers. Thus the female victim of sexual abuse is punished by society rather than the male perpetrator.

Violence against women in Thimphu Abstract In the early days women were mistreated by their husbands due to lack of education and were considered as the angel of the house where they are compiled to do the house hold chores. In Bhutan violence against women is increasing even though there are various organizations helping the women. Chapter 1: Introduction Domestic violence refers to all kind of violence that occurs within the four walls of a house. Most commonly, a wife is the victim of her husband when actually it can happen between or among the parents and children. Violence here doesn’t necessarily mean physical violence; it refers to violence of all type, and whether it verbal or mental.
With society’s focus on punishment and retribution towards criminals, it is often forgotten that one of the main purposes of prison is rehabilitation. Orange is the New Black provides a representation for woman inmates in a media dominated by crime shows depicting all criminals as the bad guys. Humanizing inmates, OITNB shows how almost anyone can become a criminal, especially with a focus towards minority women growing up with inadequate needs. Abuse of power among prison guards, long-term exposure to social isolation, and racial bias may fit towards the punishment ideology but do little towards rehabilitation. As depicted throughout the series, the extreme isolation of prison negatively effects all inmates.
Sexual assault and rape are serious social and widespread health issues. Women are overwhelmingly the victims of these actions, while men are nearly always the perpetrators. This can be proven when analyzing how women clearly do not experience equality in regards to gender hierarchy, the prevalent abuse of power by men in the workplace, and the underreporting of sexual violence and how it is rarely seriously prosecuted. In regard to gender hierarchy, women clearly do not experience equality. A case involving a Stanford swimmer, Brock Turner, who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman and only served three months in prison, shows the lack of justice for women.

She suffers traumatic experiences that she lives with for the rest of her life.
Women in prisons are brutally tortured and sexually exploited in brutal ways, According to the extract provided by Bonnie Kerness, a prison staff sprayed a female inmate with pepper spray and took her clothes off when she refused to take her clothes off in front of 5 male guards (Kerness, 2006, pg. 32). The prisoner did not provoke with any of her actions hence the guards abused her without any valid reason; the rights given to her by the eighth amendment of the U.S constitution was violated. Juveniles in adult prisons have a very high probability of being abused by the correctional staff and by other inmates. Time spend in adult prisons can alter the personalities of these juveniles completely which can potentially destroy their futures.
Sexual Discrimination For as long a humanity has kept records, women seem to have been victims of sexual discrimination. In other words, women have been raped, abused, underappreciated, and generally mistreated in society based on the fact that they are women. The issue of gender discrimination is widespread around the World and millions of women suffer from sexual discrimination from any of its various form daily. Sexual segregation prevents women from passing citizenship to their children, to get a divorce, even when they are abused by their partner, and to get a proper education in some countries. Thus women suffer at the hands of a patriarchal society where they have virtually no rights.
In any refugee population, approximately 50 percent of the uprooted people are women and girls. Stripped of the protection of their homes, their government and often their family structure, females are often particularly vulnerable. They face the rigours of long journeys into exile, official harassment or indifference and frequent sexual abuse - even after reaching an apparent place of safety. Despite this little has been done by the international community to deal with them as women in a particular situation and with particular needs. Refugee women flee various types of persecution, including female circumcision, morality codes, rape, and other forms of violence in search of protection of their most fundamental human rights.
