Sotheary You was invited to speak at the Voice of Civil Society on ‘Youth and Equal Society’ on Saturday 15 December 2018.

Sotheary shared the session with two young leaders in the social development field. She mentioned that to promote women’s rights and to achieve an equal society, which she referred to the equal rights between women and men, individual play a crucial role to bring changes. Each societal member should encourage women and girls to pursue their dream, motivate them to challenge discouring perceptions and give them chances to strengthen their capacity.
