In Myanmar the burden traditionally falls on women for many things.

A few very obvious ones, that are common in many societies are:

  • Firewood and water collection and food preparation
  • Disproportionate and unrecognised portion of agricultural production work
  • Key unacknowledged roles in many different market and service chains
  • Primary caregiver for children, their education and health
  • Primary caregiver for older people.

In Myanmar many additional prejudices exist against Myanmar women. Perhaps one of the best Myanmar studies to date of this was done by Schuele1. This added insight into new gender prejudices resulting from changes taking place in modern society, due to rapid economic development post-ceasefires.

It discussed a model where pockets of intense economic activity created social shifts involving changes in gender roles, sexuality, conflict and other factors. These resulted in increased conflict, risks and hazards for women. This model remains extremely relevant in the context of intense investment in specific areas.

Women and Environment Matters

The Beijing and Dakar Platforms produced excellent focus on the important relationship between women and the environment. These were reiterated in the Banjul Commitment. Objectives and recommendations were are included in the briefing note and show an enormous range of areas relevant to thinking and progression of women's empowerment issues globally.

Myanmar has endorsed a National Strategic Plan for the Advancement of Women. This is an important step forward for women's empowerment.
