In 1991, a consortium of women jointly organized “16-Day Campaign of Activism to Eliminate Gender-Based Violence” from 25 November to 10 December, to call for actions to prevent and eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls at national and international levels. The campaign has annually been organized ever since and has been participated by UN agencies, government agencies, feminist activist groups, trade unions and civil society organizations, that are working to promote women’s rights and gender equality in 187 countries. During this 16-Day Campaign, we, representatives of 9 trade unions, associations, and civil society organizations, operating in Cambodia, would like to present the challenges faced by women workers and farmers during global crisis of COVID-19 to the government, corporates and development agencies and to propose for urgent interventions in response to those challenges.
