Is Budget 2023 Gender Responsive?

Last Friday at Parliament, Prime Minister & Finance Minister Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim unveiled the new Budget 2023. The Budget billed ‘Developing Malaysia Madani’ involves an allocation of RM388.1 billion. 

But is this a gender-responsive budget? Does it do enough to push for equality and equity across genders?

We speak to Lilian Kok, who’s the Programme Manager at the All Women’s Action Society (AWAM).
