New Girl Law : Drafting a Future for Cambodiaby Unknown
The engrossing report on young Cambodian women's struggles for human rights and media justice continues in this follow-up to the critically acclaimed Cambodian Grrrl. This account explains how, in an attempt to help long-suffering Cambodian women in the postKhmer Rouge regime archive their own stories, history was rewritten. Combining a modern understanding of the country and a wealth of historical knowledge, this firsthand account explains how modern Cambodia is attempting to recover from the crippling imperialism and state-backed genocide of the Khmer Rouge government. Seeking to gain more international news coverage and become part of the U.S. public's consciousness, this unique commentary on the current state of affairs of a country not frequented by U.S. tourism gives readers the first American viewpoint on the subject since the 1970s.
