Jan Ruff O'Herne: Australian activist
Jeanne Alida "Jan" Ruff O'Herne was a Dutch Australian human rights activist known for her vocal campaigns and speeches against war rape. During World War II, O'Herne was among young women forced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army. Fifty years after the end of the war, O'Herne decided to speak out publicly to demand a formal apology from the Japanese government and to highlight the plight of other "comfort women".
