Rahayu Mahzam on empowering women

The Government constantly reviews feedback from the public to propose further action to support women in their caregiving responsibilities and tackle emerging challenges, said Parliamentary Secretary for Communications and Information and Health Rahayu Mahzam. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Aug 3), she said one such emerging challenge is the proliferation of sexual violence in cyberspace, which worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic as people spend more time online. Such behaviour negatively impacts the physical and mental well-being of victims, she said.
