Female Face of Poverty in Issue of Land Tenure

On September 14, 2010 Cambodia Daily published my article:

The Female Face of Poverty is Seen in Issue of Land Tenure.

“I wish to congratulate Kuch Naren for her excellent report on the high number of women in land protests in her recent article (“The Increasingly Female Face of Land Protests,”Sept 2 page 1).

The article focused on the number of women. I wish to draw the attention of policy makers and lawmakers to the serious social and economic impact on women, families and on society in our women’s desperate fight for land tenure.

Denying people their right to land tenure is a violation of their constitutional rights, a deprivation of their basic human right for security, an affront to their dignity and their right to development.”
