'Women Can Be Equal In All Endeavours'

According to our former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad, it is not a question of gender but performance and qualification that count in the appointment of woman to high positions.Malaysian women should cease perceiving themselves as the weaker sex when carrying out their duties or given responsibilities in all aspects of life.
Women should also stop asking for special treatment in certain fields, in order to produce a position scenario of gender sensitisation within the society.Nowadays, woman's greatest challenge would be discrimination at work.Employers may prefer to hire men and give them more training and promotion opportunities.This is because woman may eventually put their family before their career and either resign or be less committed to their work.But we must always remember that 'man man may work from sun to sun but a woman's work is never known.'
Woman should not look at themselves as a weaker gender, then what more the perception from men about women.If we want the same treatment, would we be able to accept the responsibilities that comes with it.Let opportunities given to women for their own capabilities and and abilities and not solely because they are women.Men should be reminded of William Congreve's couplet "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
The setting up of The Woman and Family Development Ministry is a set up in the right direction.It reinforces the Government's to do away with male chauvinistic prejudices and to give woman their rightful place in society so that they can play a more meaningful role in Government's effort to eradicate poverty, overcome social ills and other problems plaguing the country.
