Officials Push to Put Women in Politics

Officials from four political parties attended a two-day workshop to seek new ways of getting more women in politics, especially as candidates in the upcoming national elections.

A very small number of women hold high government positions.

There are only two women ministers, of 26 ministries, and zero provincial governors. However, some women have found seats as chiefs of communes.

UNDP officials said Thursday Cambodia had a "very low level of women in decision making positions within the legislature."
