Abolishment of Single Sex Institutions in Malaysia

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Most single sex institutions in Malaysia exist within primary and secondary level of education with students ranging from ages 6 - 17. At this age, most children usually do not have the liberty or knowledge to select the best and most appropriate school for themselves. Parents are the ones deciding on behalf of their children. Parents who choose to enroll their children in single sex institutions do not only portray their own stereotypes towards gender, but they also expose their children to gender stereotypes at a young age. Hence, further encouraging the development of gender stereotypes in children and the future generation which would promote gender discrimination as well as gender inequality. Therefore I propose that Malaysia should abolish/limit the existence of single sex institutions.
