Bersatu lawmaker Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin was recently quoted saying that parties should field more women candidates in ""winnable seats"", to increase female representation in politics. We first dissect the statement itself and whether this is the way to go. Then we speak to a female ADUN about what it’s like being a woman in politics. And finally, we hear from the 111 Initiative.
