Delaying Marriage And Childbirth, Good Or Bad?

According to the Department of Statistics Malaysia, the mean age of a woman’s first marriage has increased from 23.5 years in 1980 to 28.1 years in 2020. It also showed a similar trend for childbirth. But what lies behind the statistics? Anis Farid, Research and Advocacy Officer at the Women's Aid Organisation tells us whilst giving us her views if the recent amendments to the Employment Act go far enough to promote gender equality in the work force.
