This is 11th year of the campaign which is jointly organized by GADC and CMN in Cambodia. The campaign is organized with good collaboration with Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Ministry of Interior, local authorities, Gender and Development Network of NGOs, the community-based core group of the Women Empowerment through Legal Awareness (WELA) and Men Perspective Project (MPP) of GADC.

The theme of the campaign in this year is “Implementation of Law on the Prevention of Domestic Violence and the Protection of the Victims Is Our Duty”. The campaign has two main purposes: to promote public awareness and to urge the law enforcing agencies to enforce laws protecting women rights and any forms of violence against women. The organization of campaign is to respond to the national theme “Together for Eradication of Violence against Women and Children for Social Development”.
