The name is what first grabbed my attention. Comfort women? What a moniker for the sexual slaves who were coerced, confined and raped in the Japanese military brothels strung across during World War II. The very name reduces the women to the sum of their service. What kind of comfort did they supply? The label is only marginally more humane than the other words for the women listed on the procurement rolls: "items" and "logs."

Thank you for all your answers ^^
One more question occurred to me.

The very name reduces the women to the sum of their service.

-->What does this mean?
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
their service = the service (i.e., the "comfort", i.e., sexual 'favors') provided by the women
