Second comfort women statue overseas unveiled in Michigan
The town of Southfield, Michigan, has unveiled the second statue outside of Korea honoring victims of Japan's wartime system of sex slavery.
The statue was unveiled at a ceremony over the weekend.
It is a replica of the "peace monument" Korean civic leaders set up across the road from the Japanese Embassy in Seoul.
Plans to install the statue were launched three years ago, but had been delayed due to a lack of funds and opposition from the Japanese community in Southfield.
Detroit's Korean-American community said the monument was not established to target Japan, but to promote women's rights and peace.
The first "comfort women" statue in the U.S. was installed in Glendale City, California, in July 2013.
