Women Power

In today's Sun paper, Women Power was the highlight of its front page! It's quoted that the swearing ceremony for the new Selangor's executive council was "especially memorable as never before have so many women been given seats in a state exco".
As a woman residing in the state of Selangor, I am really proud that these women are being elected to lead in our society. I feel blessed to be born in a country where women are not being discriminated for their gender (Especially so, when I read about the plight of Saudi Arabian women in the book, Daughters of Arabia). I hope they will continue to make us proud by performing their roles and responsibilities to the best!

I'm always glad to hear of women's progress around the world. Thanks for sharing this.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
