On 24 September 2013, Cambodian Defenders Project in partnership with Transcultural Psychosocial Organization and the Victims Support Section at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia held the third Women's Hearing on gender-based violence during conflict. Four survivors of rape and forced marriage committed by the Khmer Rouge regime testified on their experience before a panel of Cambodian university students.

A short film featuring excerpts of the testimonies and statements from the testifiers, student panel members and organizers can now be watched online here.
