History on Repeat #4: Nineteenth-Century Women of Malaya

History on Repeat is an eight-part miniseries that aims to delve into key aspects of Malaysian history.

For our fourth episode, we speak with Dr Mulaika Hijjas, Lecturer in South East Asian Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, about the history of women in nineteenth-century Malaya.
