C. Reparations for women subjected to systemic violations in other contexts

2. Looking to the past

71. The single most organized and well-documented movement for reparations for women is that for the so-called “"comfort women”". Since the late 1980s, survivors have come forward to bear witness and mobilize international public opinion, asking for an official apology and reparation. Survivors have rejected financial aid gestures as inadequate and reiterated their desire for a formal apology and individual compensation through public funds rather than a welfare- or benevolence-type of assistance based on socio-economic needs. As victims of sexual crimes, they do not want to receive economic compensation without an official apology and official recognition of State responsibility.
