A question of equality

I want to raise a concern, especially among male public servants, about gender equality.

For example, when the husband gets the title of Ek Ouddam, or His Excellency, his

wife is automatically called Lok Chum Teav, or Her Excellency. But if the wife gets

the title of Her Excellency, her husband is not automatically called Ek Ouddam, but

always Monsieur, as normal, unless the husband has already himself received the title

of His Excellency.

If we have gender equality in our society, why not vice versa?

I want to thank in advance anyone who is able to clarify this issue.

Dr. Chuong Seng Ly - Kratie.
