This publication is based on findings from research into gender crimes during the Khmer Rouge regime. The first research was conducted in 2006 by the Cambodian Defenders Project (CDP), a human rights NGO based in Phnom Penh. Initial interviews were carried out first by targeting 1,500 people who had been over 10 years old during the Khmer Rouge regime. Then 100 people were selected for the purpose of documenting their personal stories about gender crimes of the time. The author played a role both as research project manager and also in conducting field interviews, with both victims and witnesses.
