After the completion of a second phase of a radio monitoring project

conducted by the Women's Media Centre of Cambodia (WMC), results indicate

that women are featured heavily in traditional roles on Cambodian media,

according to a WMC press release on Aug 13.

"In folklore programs and in social awareness programs women play the

role of mother, lover and wife 100 percent of the time," acording to

the release.

The survey showed, as well, that in news programs women are presented"as

a force for positive social change 100 percent of the time." But the

survey noted that only seven percent of news stories on radio are about

women.
