Interview at the Women’s Forum Global Meeting 2010

The Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society was founded in 2005 by Aude Zieseniss de Thuin to promote women’s vision on the economic and social issues of our time. We aim to become a hub of debate, sharing, brainstorming and action where women and men from around the world and from all horizons speak and exchange on all major societal and economic issues.

Mu Sochua met with Amma from to speak about her recent talk at The World in 2011 Forum hosted by The Economist. It was a three day event that focuses on different global issues, as well as solutions to those issues. 

Sochua explains why she became a politician and the many issues that face women in Cambodia today including: land grabbing, poverty, gender-based violence, and lack of education. 

Women must be empowered. The entire society must want change. 

“Everyday is a challenge. The women workers must be with me. The victims of domestic violence must be with me. In all the movements for change, are the women with me? We must not be the voice FOR the women but the voice WITH the women.”

About The World In Festival

Every year for twenty-five years, The Economist has published The World in…, a collection of trends and predictions about the year ahead. Journalists from The Economist and leaders in business, government and a wide variety of fields — from Bill Gates to Angelina Jolie, from Nicholas Sarkozy to the Dalai Lama, from Michael Bloomberg to Eric Schmidt – step out on a limb and make bold predictions about their fields of endeavour and the events that will shape our lives in the near future.

Predicting the future is a hazardous affair, but over the years The World in… has given readers a rich feast of ideas about what’s on the horizon.

On December 2-4 2010The Economist will host the second annual World In Festival, timed with the publication of The World in 2011 publication. Over the course of this 3-day event, a select group of engaged Economist readers will be immersed in debate, discussion and interactive activities with the editors of The Economist, guest writers for The World in 2011, and special guests. From high-powered speakers on pressing economic, business, and political matters to experts on cultural trends, artists and musicians, the summit will be a feast for the intellect and an opportunity to frame the year ahead with people who will move the headlines.

For over 165 years, The Economist has traded on two ideas—insight and optimism. At The World In 2011 event, participants will have the opportunity to share in a unique experience that only The Economist can create—and to share their views and ideas about what will shape the months ahead.
