Cambodia can be a tough place to be a woman!
ambodia is a country that hold strict culture and religion. There are many cultures norms that hold so strict in the society. In the new generation is getting better and better. In the older generation like my mum’s it was even stricter than it is now. She used to tell me story about how the society treat girls during her generation.
She was mostly could only stay home,and did house works. It was also very hard for girls to get higher education during that day. There is an old way of saying that “Girls should not be educated,because she might write letter to her secret boyfriend”,”Girls do not need to continue higher education,because in the future,she will still be someone’s wife”.
Or another says”Girls should not travel far from home,it is not safe”,similarly if girl is educated,she might not be able to get a husband,might fall into the proverb that says”The poor can’t afford,the rich won’t come!”
