Long abstract:

The exhibition provides a comprehensive analysis of Japan's comfort women system. Because of this history, for a long time, Chinese society was filled with a strong hatred towards Japan. Chinese will never forget the war. It is like a chamber of unconditional rage, regardless age, region, or political views; all Japanese are discursively constructed as our enemy. During the Japanese tsunami period, many extreme articles appeared on many Internet sites. SITES. In reality, Japan is an ideologically pluralistic society. There are extreme right-wing forces hostile to China, and some government officials glorify war, even try to revive militarism. However, there are also some groups in Japan that try their best to have deep critical reflection. The post-war generation loves world peace, is eager to improve Japan-Chinese friendship. The women and peace museum exhibition project will bring some positive results in order to build more fair and healthy societies in both China and Japan.
