21 Cambodian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have renewed a call for the government to resolve 11 concerns regarding gender-based violence at work and the protection of workers’ fundamental freedoms and rights. In a joint statement released last Sunday, the local civil society organisations called on various government ministries and institutions to act in response to women’s needs.
The call was part of the 16-day Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign.
According to the NGOs, this is the third time they have reiterated their call for the 11 concerns to be resolved. The first time was during International Women’s Day in March, and the second was during the International Labour Day in May. To this day, however, the issues have remained unresolved.
