Feminists question new Cambodian school’s curriculum
July 1, 2016
A school in Cambodia set up to teach women how to become good daughters-in-law is being questioned by feminist movements.
The school teaches fruit carving, baking, cooking, sewing, floral arrangements and part of the “Chbab srey,” also known as rules for women.
The Ministry of Women’s Affairs successfully had the “Chbab srey” removed from school curriculums in 2007. A portion of it is still taught in some rural schools.
