The proposed bill would also ban men from going out in public shirtless and would also moderate how much noise people can make. But the conservative legislation has sparked backlash in Cambodia, particularly among women, who have started posting photos of themselves wearing clothing that would be deemed inappropriate under the new law alongside the hashtag mybodymychoice in Khmer. Tan Molika, a recent high school graduate, started an online petition calling for the draft legislation to officially be withdrawn. As of Friday, August 7, the petition had garnered over 14, signatures. Molika told VICE News that she originally created the petition to spread awareness, though she has received numerous requests to submit the petition to the Cambodian government.

The literature was taught in Cambodian schools until Chbab Srey teaches women to talk and speak softly, obey their husbands and maintain boundaries between the outside world and the home in order to live a more virtuous life. In April, a Cambodian woman named Ven Rachna was sentenced to six months in prison on pornography charges because she wore clothing deemed inappropriate during her Facebook live streams.
