Among the legacies of World War II are the children fathered by foreign soldiers with local women. Some Filipinas and their half-American children were able to immigrate to the United States, but many families were also abandoned or left unrecognized. Women’s organizations persistently point out the increase of incidences of sexual violence against women and children in military camps or bases, militarized areas, or war zones.
