( CNN) Malaysia has a problem: misogyny. The country’s Parliament set yet another sordid instance last week when Member of Parliament Che Mohamad Zulkifly Jusoh, during a debate on revising domestic violence laws, told spouses were ‘abused’ when spouses hurled insults, withheld sexuality and denied permission for Muslim boys to take another wife.
Sadly, this attack on ladies isn’t an isolated incident.
In 2007, another MP, Bung Mohktar Radin, likened the leaking parliament roof to a woman’s interval, picking on female opposition MP Fong Po Kuan, and saying she ‘leaked’ every month. His disgraceful commentaries outlined laughter from the flooring. No male MP stood up to defend her.
