Why Do Some Men Still Think They Can Verbally Abuse Women?

YB Kasthuri Patto, MP for Batu Kawan

Why Do Some Men Still Think They Can Verbally Abuse Women?

Late last week, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made waves when she delivered a speech, in response to a fellow male congressman using foul words on her. And Malaysians will recall how earlier this month, Batu Kawan MP Kasthuri Patto was subjected to both racist and sexist remarks by a male MP during a parliamentary sitting. We look at the issue of verbal abuse directed at women in power by men, and why it continues to be prevalent.
