In the times, when the whole world is under lockdown, the Malaysian government has shared a disgusting piece of advice to its women, who are in lockdown with their partners. What is more shocking is the fact that these tips were issued in relation to news of increasing cases of domestic violence in the country.
Though this post has been withdrawn by the Malaysian Government after the backlash, here are the issued guidelines.
#1. Dress up and avoid wearing home clothes.
Avoid wearing home clothes. Dress up, as usual, put on make-up and dress neatly.
#2. Avoid Nagging your husband
If you see your husband carry out a task in a manner that clashes with your own method, avoid nagging.
And finally, something totally bizarre.
#3. Try and talk like Doraemon
With a ‘coy, feminine laugh’.
‘Don’t nag’ and ‘wear make-up’ are things told to women for centuries now, but the Doraemon thing has to be a first.
In today’s episode of ‘what non-existent thing are women’, we are cartoons. Congratulations.

These tips are not only disgusting but demeaning for all women. In the times, when we are busy urging Indian husbands to support their wives during the lockdown, here is a government that is treating women as second class citizens. What a Shame!
