Tep Sothy (Khmer: ទេព សុទ្ធី; born February 13, 1973) is a Cambodian politician and Member of Parliament for Takeo province. She has represented the Takeo province since the Cambodia National Rescue Party won 55 seats in Cambodian general election, 2013. Before coming to Cambodia, Sothy was a high school teacher in Chicago. In 2010, she decided to join Cambodia's Human Rights Party established and led by Kem Sokha who previously led the Cambodian Center for Human Rights in Phnom Penh for several years. Tep decided to move to Cambodia shortly before the 2013 National Elections. She told Voice of America Khmer Service in 2010 that she joined the political party because Kem Sokha was really "a great, moral, freedom-seeking leader." In 2012, the Sam Rainsy Party and the Human Rights Party, Cambodia's two major political parties merged to form the Cambodia National Rescue Party. Her work in Cambodia includes campaigns with women to improve gender awareness, introduction of gender sensitive laws, and policies to address issues on health, children's welfare, domestic violence, reproduction, and migrant workers rights.
