Happy International Women's Day!



This is the day , all of us as woman should remember and celebrate !

Not because its our 308 Malaysian General Election anniversary ( 8 March 2008) but because this is the day that women from the past have continued fighting for the interest of women and here we are today to pledge to continue to fight to promote and create respect, protection and fulfillment of equal rights for women. To work towards the elimination of discrimination against women, and to bring about equality between women and men!




How can we fight for interest of women ?

Be it you are a MAN or WOMAN

(Let me share a few ways which some of you might or might not agree!)


1)Join an non-governmental organisation (NGO) which champion for women rights. You join because you believe for a cause !

For example: Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) , All Women's Action Society Malaysia (AWAM), Sisters in Islam (SIS) amongst the others which are in the
The Joint Action Group for Gender Equality (JAG), which are also they are under the umbrella of National Council of Women's Organizations, Malaysia (NCWO)





2) Be a volunteer


You can always be a volunteer for any NGOs , whether you are a doctor, lawyer, tailor, housewife or babysitters.


3) Contribute your money



If you do not have time to be a volunteer due to your busy working lifestyle, then financial assistant will be the next best choice!


4) If at all , you have no intention to join a NGO, then be a caring and responsible citizen. Which mean, you report when you see domestic violence (abuse) !

Violence against a woman is a crime, and a violation of her human rights.

"Be brave for the truth and afraid that judgment day will come one day" !


5) Be an extraordinary WOMAN yourself!

Be it at home, work or social circle, always equipped ourselves (WOMEN!!!) with knowledge ( not necessary formal education only !! Beauty knowledge too !!!!), skills ( any skills includes cooking, cleaning and nagging ?) and confidence ! And always believe that we are as equal as any man out there !


Mother Teresa!


Sirimavo Bandaranaike was elected to be the Prime Minister back in 1960 in Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) according to Wikipedia which is 31 years ago. And I hope to see very soon that a woman Prime Minister to be elected in Malaysia !



And meantime let's continue fight for

1) Equal treatment and respect towards man and woman in all places!

2)30 percent of women in positions at decision-making levels!!

3) Equal work opportunity; salary and promotion!



We are equal because we 2 eyes, 1 nose and 1 mouth just like you!


Happy Women's Day my dear women readers !

You are the BEST!!!
