Women’s Media Center | There can be no real accountability in Myanmar if women remain on the sidelines
Excerpt of Women’s Media Center op-ed co-authored by GJC Senior Burma Researcher Phyu Phyu Sann.
Myanmar presents one of the world’s most difficult challenges to combating impunity, assisting victims, and reforming the institutions responsible for committing sexual violence and other crimes in conflicts. For years, women in Myanmar have called on the international community to intervene to put meaningful pressure on their human rights abusers. They are demanding an end to military control in the country and accountability for perpetrators of sexual violence and other egregious crimes against women.
