Overview

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 post–Khmer Rouge regime archive their own stories, history was rewritten.
