The Long and Difficult Road: Story of an Asian Woman Politician

Mu Sochua

The Weekend Times featured the story of Mu Sochua, a well-known advocate of women’s rights in Cambodia. Displaced from her country in 1972, Sochua returned to her country after an 18-year exile and has since become a key figure in the Cambodian parliament known for her campaigns against domestic violence, child abuse, and human trafficking, among other issues.

Ostracized by the major party and governmental media, Sochua relies on grassroots campaigns to promote her causes. She has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and given a number of awards for her role as a leading figure in human rights protection.

For the full story, see the Times article.
