PETALING JAYA: A series of posters on "Kebahagian Rumahtangga" posted on the Women and Family Development Ministry's Facebook page has raised the ire of women over their sexist messaging. "These posters stereotype women as being bossy and naggy," says Women's Aid Organisation's advocacy officer, Tan Heang-Lee. "They also send the message that it's women's responsibility to change their behaviour in order to avoid conflict at home. "The ministry has the responsibility to promote healthy role models for women, families and communities. Given the increased risk of domestic violence during the MCO, the ministry should be doing more domestic violence prevention public service announcements, said Tan.
