Ribbonless

To the editor:

W hile I sincerely thank the Phnom Penh Post for its support and interest in promoting the status of Cambodian women, I am disappointed by the limited coverage of the Cambodian Women's Weaving for Beijing which took place at Wat Phnom from Nov 15-17. The event was historic for the thousands of women who came from the 21 provinces and the "ribbon" is the national symbol that Cambodian women will carry to the 4th World Conference on Women in Beijing.

Your Dec 2-15 issue had many pictures of the Water Festival but not a single picture of the "ribbon" which measures about one kilometer. What a lost opportunity for Cambodian women.

We plan to display the "ribbon" at other occasions and hope you will give us a chance next time.

Thank you for your Women's Affairs section. We will continue to submit our articles.
