This report aims to provide a realistic account of the trauma suffered by Cambodian women from domestic violence, rape, and human trafficking for the purposes of sexual exploitation. The report is based on information from LICADHO’s Women’s Rights Office, based in Phnom Penh, and staff in 12 provincial offices, and it also features personal stories of violence from four Cambodian women. The aim of this report is to influence the Cambodian Government to fulfil its obligations under the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and the Cambodian Millennium Development Goals with respect to violence against women issues.
