United States House of Representatives House Resolution 121 (H.Res. 121) is a resolution about comfort women which Japanese-American Congressman Mike Honda of California's 15th congressional district introduced to the American House of Representatives in 2007. It asks that the Japanese government apologize to former comfort women and include curriculum about them in Japanese schools, citing 1921 International Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Women and Children that Japan has ratified and United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325.

This resolution was passed on July 30, 2007.

Washington Post advertisement[edit]

On June 14, 2007, a group of conservative Japanese politicians, academics, and others ran an advertisement in the Washington Post critical of the resolution. The ad was in response to a previous advertisement by a group of Korean comfort women survivors that ran in the Washington Post in support of the resolution, titled The Truth about Comfort Women.
