MU SOCHUA

For more than 25 years, Mu Sochua has been a leading human rights advocate. She has worked forcefully to prioritize women's issues in the wake of Cambodia's decades of tragedy. Joining with local and international actors, she has been working to stop human trafficking, child abuse, domestic violence, worker exploitation, corruption and government oppression. Mu Sochua is currently battling governmental abuse of power and is facing a possible jail term if the Cambodian Supreme Court upholds her criminal defamation conviction for criticizing the Prime Minister.

"War and genocide took me away from my native Cambodia when I had just completed high school. In 1972,
I left my war-torn country as a young adolescent and returned 18 years later as a mother and an activist,
working with women's networks and human rights organizations to promote peace
and the inclusion of strong provisions in the 1993 Constitution to protect the
human rights of women. I have been tirelessly dedicated to this cause ever since.
As a woman leader, I lead with the strong belief that women bring stability and peace,
at home, in their communities and for the nation." -
