The Role of Women in Cambodia
Tuesday, 13 August 2019 , Written by « Administrator »   
 One of the pillars of CISA’s Gender Equality Policy is research that has been conducted by The Asia Foundation, on the role of women in Cambodia.

An earlier report found that:

• Cambodian women are significantly underrepresented: Cambodian women represent 51 percent of the country’s population, however in 2012, only 18 percent of all elected commune councilors were women

• A new approach is required to: Expand women’s economic opportunities, increase women’s and girls’ basic rights and security, and promote women’s effective participation in political and public life

• Education-especially for girls-is associated with: Increased productivity, better health outcomes for women and their families, greater environmental awareness, and increased participation of women in public life
