Phnom Penh – Men Sophy, a grassroots politician from the ruling Cambodian People’s Party, has set her sights on the top job in the Battambang commune of Klaing Meas.
Like many women with political aspirations in Cambodia, Sophy, 38, is concerned that too few women are promoted into leadership roles in the male-dominated sector.
She remains the only woman councilor in the commune after six years in office.
