Cambodian girls washing can't be hung with the boys!

Everyday is a washing day in Cambodia.
Interestingly, women's washing must not be hung out to dry with the men's.

It is considered to be inappropriate.

I only learnt of this recently. Since most housing in Phnom Penh is of the close quarters nature, a lot of neighbours view your washing. So, now I stop and think about the 'gender' of the washing I put out to dry.
