M. Evelina Galang tells the story of sixteen surviving Filipino comfort women who survived violence inflicted by the Japanese army in World War II in her new book Lola’s House: Filipino Women Living with War (Curbstone, 2017). Starting in the late nineties, Galang built relationships with women at Lolas’ House, a community center for women’s organizing in Manila, and records their testimony—at once intensely personal and globally political—in this searing book. Don’t miss this rare appearance by Florida-based author Galang, one of the heads of VONA. Galang was joined in conversation by Sophia Hussain, AAWW’s Programs Coordinator.
