Pia was invited to be a speaker and guest of honor at the Cambodian Leadership Retreat for Women Parliamentarians this September 2009. She made quite a strong and positive impact being the current President of the Women Members of the International Parliamentary Union. The Cambodians were very happy to have her with them. Personally I felt glad that even though our political situation at home is far from being perfect, I can honestly say that our women NGOs, leaders and politicians are a cut above the rest especially in Asia. And trust me I am speaking from experience, having grown up with my mom!
