The Policing of Women's Bodies

And are there double standards when it comes to expectations of how women dress in public? We hear the thoughts of three women - Fifa Rahman, Policy Consultant, Malaysian AIDS Council, Suri Kempe, Programme Manager, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and Dr. Alicia Izharuddin, Senior Lecturer, Gender Studies, Universiti Malaya.
