he author’s intention is clear from the start that she wants an apology from the Japanese government and a repatriation for the comfort women whom she believed were aggrieved and should be justly paid. Her paper is also a subtle way of pronouncing that she is supporting the advocacies of pro-comfort women rights. It is addressed to an audience that is working for this commitment.
Her articulation of events and history of comfort women agrees with other written articles about the matter. She wrote about the number of about 200,000 women in brothels, and the pains and sexual diseases they have contracted, in the same way it is reported in the Encyclopedia article for comfort women. Author is able to uncover events beyond World War II and takes us to the recent scenarios of confessions of comfort women, investigations and hearings in order to convince the Japanese government to apologize. She was able to unearth researches relevant on the matter from archives and incorporated it in her study that could be useful to other interested researchers.
Other topics that she wrote about international responses like that of the US, Canada, Dutch Parliament and EU are also found in numerous articles of research, but nevertheless, a confirmation of evidences. This also shows that the argument Choi had written is backed up by evidences from primary sources.
