In an era where women’s rights and gender equality is actively promulgated, there are leaders like Bung Moktar and Datuk Mohd Hafarizam Harun who are harping on women’s menses issues… ridiculously trivial and mindless
It is sad and disappointing to note the ignorance and incompetence of the National Women Secretary, Karampal Kaur in issuing the letter and also the ignorance of the National Women Leader, Mohana Muniandy for endorsing the issuance of the letter and confirming the status, whereby they both have failed to understand the Women Section By-Law 2003 to an extent claiming that I am deemed resigned as a State Women Leader for failing to attend the National Women Liaison Council Meeting which is a nonsensical statement since both positions are independent of one another involving two separate committees and the application of the By-Law 53 is specific to that particular committee. If the National Women Leader, Mohana Muniandy is capable of making such ludicrous mistake, I can’t help but to question her capability in leading the Women Wing.
France has awarded Datuk Ambiga with its highest honour, the Chevalier de Legion d’Honneur
Everyone needs a role model. Someone brave to lead the way and make us want to, dare to, pursue our dreams. Or simply help feel good about ourselves just as we are. Datuk Ambiga is definetely a role model for women’s around the world . She inspires me to continue with my cause to advocate women empowerment, eradication of poverty and human rights.
In recognising her dedication to human rights and the rule of law, France has awarded Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan with its highest honour, the Chevalier de Legion d’Honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honour).
French Ambassador to Malaysia Marc Barety presented the award to the former Bar Council president in a ceremony at his residence on Friday. Ambiga dedicated the award to those who had supported her efforts.
My heartiest congratulations to Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan.
In 2009, Ambiga was honoured by the United States with the prestigious Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage award in conjunction with International Women’s Day.
