About Gil Won-Ok
Gil Won-Ok was born in Pyongyang in 1928. In 1940, when she was thirteen years old, Japanese soldiers abducted her and took her to the comfort station in Harbin, China where she was turned into a sex slave. When she was fifteen years old, she was moved to a “comfort station” in Shíjiāzhuāng, China where she was forced to stay until she was eighteen. After the end of World War II she managed to return to Korea but could not go back to her hometown because Korea had been divided. Ms. Gil works as activist fighting for the human rights of women in former and current war zones and conflict regions. Recently she fulfilled her dream of becoming a singer and released an album of her songs.
