The traumas that the Okinawan women experienced during the Battle of Okinawa not only tighten and strengthen this community, but also gave them the power to stand up and speak up for themselves. During the war time, within the Okinawan women communities, they were the only ones thay were supporting each other through this difficult time. Such actions built strong trusts among them and make them act as one. When it comes to US military Occupation authorities, regardless of the result, they were still able to speak up for themselves and attempt to protect their own rights. Without the traumas they experienced, such act might not had happened. However, the fact that they were a group of unarmed women decided their fate. Eventually, racial and gender discrimination devoured their voice and their hope.
