More than 20 Vespa riders are expected to participate in the Vespa Rally Tour de Phnom Penh on International Women's Rights Day in the capital on Sunday. Tong Soprach, the tour organiser, said: "Everybody can participate since this is a public campaign. I want to tell men they must stop being involved in domestic violence and rape, and stop considering women as things for their pleasure," he said. The Vespa Rally Tour de Phnom Penh starts at 10am on Street 13 near Wat Phnom and will head along Sisowath Quay, Norodom Boulevard and then Monivong Boulevard, before finishing at the Independence Monument.
