Women’s Work

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Women’s Work

by Hang Sokunthea and Hannah Hawkins | September 10, 2016

At a bustling construction site in the heart of Phnom Penh, the women stand apart, separated from their male co-workers by more than just their brightly-colored, mismatched clothes that jump out against the concrete-gray surroundings.

As they shovel sand and rocks into bags, men wield power tools. As they sweep the job site, men paint walls, set plumbing pipes and wind electrical wires through the luxury apartment project that’s climbing above the trees on the corner of streets 228 and 55 in Daun Penh district.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Article from earlier in the year on the women building the roads in Myanmar. Many similarities to Cambodia - most of these women have kids, are unskilled, are paid less than the men etc.

On the road with the women building Myanmar

Female construction workers are commonplace on Burmese building sites. Are they empowered or exploited?

Conservative values and decades of military rule have limited women’s voices, but contradictions abound when it comes to gender equality in Myanmar. The building sector exemplifies this. The political transition to democracy is accompanied by a construction boom, with new roads winding through the countryside and buildings springing up in the biggest cities. Women make up a striking portion of the labour force – a position that empowers them, but also exposes them to the risks of a loosely regulated environment.

Well, it's a first for me seeing something today - the woman in the cartoon jim-jams appears to be wearing safety boots.
