In this Sunday’s election in Chiang Mai there seem to be more young female candidates than ever before.

While most are pictured with their party leaders in their campaign posters, one particular young female candidate appears boldly alone on her advertising placards.

Young adults display her placards at Chiang Mai City’s morning markets as a song from the group’s pickup truck plays nearby.

The song describes how she is not only capable and dedicated as a public lawyer, but very “lovely” as well. Therefore we all should “vote for her”.

Female lawmakers are very much needed for the sake of equality and transparency in Thailand, just as US the female legislators who won last November’s midterm elections in large numbers are now making their presence felt in the US Congress.
