International Women’s Day 2017 Feature

The Star Malaysia featured me as one of their “Female(s with) Fortitude” for International Women’s Day 2017. I’m proud to be included among other amazing and inspiring females! Thanks to Nasa Maria Entaban for writing the piece and Ong Soo Hua for the photo.

Highlighting here one questions that is especially close to my role as a female academician:

What do you think has been an important step forward for feminism/women’s rights in recent years?
The movement against all-male panel discussions. There is no shortage of qualified women nowadays, so I am glad that this movement is getting more traction among event organizers and even organizations like the UN Global Compact.
