DAP flays firms refusing to hire women in tudung
Despite often being accused of being a Chinese-centric party, the DAP today leapt to the defence of Muslim women denied employment because they wore the tudung (head scarf).
Such discriminatory policy is wrong and the DAP is even more alarmed that such companies had defended the move based on the notion of "free market", the party's national publicity chief Tony Pua said today.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
