About the book: Women in Sabah have not been studied and discussed in a systematic manner. Women as a group are often seen through the certain stereotypes and realities of a minority of women who are more often highlighted in the media. The majority of women, who in their daily lives struggle and communities, remain unseen and unheard.
This book, published by SAWO attempts to give a more balanced view and understanding of the status and contribution of women in the state. It looks at a representative profile of women in Sabah based on our present understanding as well as drawing on the diverse richness of women's experience. Taking a gender approach, this book highlights women's position within the present structures of economy, politics, socio-culture, education and law.
We have also shared some possible steps for meaningful changes; the most important being the work together of women and men in the process of building a just and equal world. Our vision of society, oppression within and across national, class, ethnicity and gender, is evident throughout the entire book.
