Improving Cambodia’s response to violence against women


A new survey conducted by the Cambodian Ministry of Planning adds to growing evidence confirming the link between gender inequality and violence against women.

Cambodia’s Minister of Women’s Affairs, Kantha Phavi, lists many factors that lead to gender-based violence, including economics, war, alcohol, drugs, and poor education.

The survey aimed to improve Cambodia’s efforts to respond to, as well as prevent, violence against women and improve services for those who need assistance.
