Women’s rights situation in Cambodia still a concern

While Cambodia has policies promoting gender equality and combating violence against women, there are still concerns about domestic violence, the promotion of men over women, and the arrest of surrogate mothers.

The UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) said it praised the Cambodian government’s efforts but noted its concern that there are no provisions in the constitution that define direct or indirect discrimination against women.

It remained concerned that the primary means of resolving cases of domestic violence in Cambodia was informal reconciliation by community members.
