Abstract:

"In a narrative and visual tour de force, Trudy Jacobsen examines the relationship between women and power in Cambodian history. Here, she seeks to describe when and why the status of women changed and what factors contributed to these changes. Although Cambodian women have been represented at different times as 'powerless' in Western analyses, the author argues that they have continued to exercise authority outside those areas of concern to Western constructs of power."--BOOK JACKET.
