Today is International Women's Day, a day where the world unites to celebrate the achievements of women while pushing for greater equality, highlighting gaps in policy that continue to isolate women and keep them from enjoying equality at home, in the workplace and in society. StarLifestyle is highlighting the stories of young women who are stepping up and taking action for causes they believe in to make Malaysia a better and safe place for everyone

Firzana Redzuan first became aware of sexual harassment as a schoolgirl, after a close encounter with a flasher outside her school compound.

It was also then that she realised how important it was to stand up for and protect herself – her mother took her to the police station to file a report about the incident.
