What is the most important role for women in the elections?

Chanratanak Oubol

Cambodian Women's Assoc.

So far there is some respect for Human Rights with regard to the equal rights of

men and women. The important role for me is to be able to vote, expressing my choice

for the next leader.

Mor Chandy

Student at Bactol School

Some rights have been respected. The Cambodian women's role is very important. They

must have the right to choose the government that they believe will lead the country

well.

Sor Heng,

Teacher at Bactok School

The role of women in the election is not to be underestimated. Equal rights between

men and women have to be maintained in all facets of life.

Sier Phala

World Vision

Women have equal rights with men which means they have the right to vote and the

right to free expression. This means we can vote for the party they like and criticize

those they don't.

Tann Channy

Khemara

We have a large number of women in the country and their role is important. They

should be allowed to express their ideas in their own government through free and

fair elections, avoiding all kinds of suppression.

Chem Sara

Farmer

I'm very happy to have the election in the near future. The election will allow women

to express their ideas by voting for the party of their choice.
