Abstract: This document review's May Ebihara's previous work on the status of Cambodian rural women based on fieldwork undertaken in 1990-2006. The aim is to explore effects of political repression on male-female relations and village life. The discussion shows that the upheavals of the war years in the 1970s have permanently changed male-female relations including the demographic balance because of high male casualty.
