VAWW-NET Japan(Violence Against Women in War-Network Japan)
VAWW-NET Japan was formed in 1998 with the conviction that "in order to eliminate violence against women in war and armed conflicts, women at the global and national levels are seeking to build a non-militarized world by bearing the responsibility of creating a peace that is based on the perspective of women's human rights."

The main objectives of VAWW-NET Japan are:
1.We call for the restoration of honor and justice for women victimized by Japan's military sexual slavery before & during WWII, and for the Japanese government to fulfill its war and post-war responsibilities;
2.As a result of sexual violence around the U.S. military bases, we ask for the removal of US military bases from Okinawa and other parts of Japan;
3.We share information on violence against women in current armed conflicts throughout the world and work in solidarity to prevent such violence.

VAWW NET Japan was on the International Organizing Committee for the Women's International Tribunal on Japan's Military Sexual Slavery took place in Tokyo in December 2000. Please refer to "Tribunal 2000" page for more detailed information.
