CARE’s Socially Marginalised Women (SMW) Program works to empower women and marginalised groups for advancing gender, equity and equality in both urban and rural areas. The majority of issues, such as gender-based violence, barriers to access to rights, choices, and participation in decision-making, are faced by women and marginalised groups in both contexts, the causes of and solutions to women and marginalised groups’ challenges in Cambodia are specific to the particular situations they face.
