Report on the Second National Conference on Gender and Development in Cambodia:

 Gender View


(Women's Empowerment Through Legal Awareness)


The project's major development objectives are:

  1. To develop women's skills as individuals and as members of community structures, and to empower women to participate as decision-makers in development activities at family, community, local and national levels.

  2. To support development initiatives that respond to the needs of women and address community attitudes and social structures that discriminate against women.

White Ribbon Campaign

Activity Report 2000
Activity Report 2001
Activity Report 2002


Each year, men around the world wear a white ribbon from November 25th , International Day for Eradication of Violence Against Women, until 10th December which is International Human Rights Day. Wearing a white ribbon is your personal pledge never to commit violence against women. It is a personal pledge not to condone acts of violence, not to make excuses for perpetrators of violence, and not to think that any woman "asks for it". It is a pledge not to remain silent. It is a pledge to challenge the men around us to act to end violence. Violence against women is, above all, a men's issue which men themselves must address.


  Stop all forms of

    discrimination against women

   Stop domestic violence

   Stop sex trafficking

   Stop rape and sexual



So please wear the white ribbon from 25th November to 10th December, and speak out in order to eliminate violence against women.
