A wishlist for women


AS we celebrate women’s amazing achievements in various fields across the world during International Women’s Day (IWD), we also recognise and honour the long and continuous struggle that advocates and activists have fought throughout the years to create a better and more just world. While there has been some progress for women’s rights in Malaysia, there is still much to do.

In addition to prevailing challenges, effects of the Covid-19 pandemic proved detrimental to gender equality as it reversed some of the progress that has been made and deepened pre-existing inequalities. Still, we must continue to raise awareness against bias, and to take action for gender equality in all spheres of life. One of the ways we can do this is to advocate for important legislation to remove gender-related barriers and uplift women.
