s2 e2 — LEE YONG-SOO and SADA ABE: the survivor and the killer Notorious Women

    • Comedy

This week, Miriam tells the story of WWII survivor turned activist Lee Young-Soo; and Lavetta tells the story of aspiring geisha turned murderess Sada Abe.
-----
In this episode, Miriam introduces activist Lee Young-Soo (Korean, born 1928), a survivor of Japanese military sexual slavery during World War II. Lee's story highlights the trauma and struggles faced by comfort women — women and girls, the majority Korean, who were forced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army in occupied countries and territories before and during World War II — and their fight for justice. Next, Lavetta introduces killer Sada Abe (Japanese, 1905–1971), who murdered her lover in such a gruesome way she became a national sensation. Abe had a troubled life and became involved in sex work and a torrid affair with Kichizo Ishida, the owner of a successful restaurant. Her obsession and jealousy led her to commit a violent act, resulting in his death. The media sensationalizes the case, framing Abe as a heartless killer. After serving her sentence, Abe struggled to rebuild her life and found solace in a working-class pub, disappearing from the public eye.
