The ministry revealed that Malaysian women excelled in professional fields, making up 67.9% of dentists in the country, 52.6% of lawyers, 52.6% of accountants, 51.9% of medical doctors and 47.3% of veterinary surgeons.

However, we currently have 33 female Members of Parliament, representing only around 14% of the entire Dewan Rakyat; and of the 31 ministers, there are currently only five women. 

Why can't we have the same number of statistics for political representation ? 

Some measures that can be taken in reaching gender equality in this sector includes :

- Using a quota system

- Establishing independent bodies WITH LEGISTATIVE POWER to effectively monitor and censor negative campaigning.

- Developing a gender Equality code of conduct for political parties. 

- The improvement on social awareness on women's leadership.

Germany and New Zealand have been projected as countries run by women who were able to put in place policies and measures to address the pandemic, and ensuing economic crisis, in a much more balanced and fair manner in terms of making sure they take care of the nation as a whole, not just certain sectors and groups. Something to ponder upon ?
