Feminist Fridays #24: The Amended National Domestic Violence Law - What Now?

The Domestic Violence (Amendment) Act 2017 was passed in Dewan Rakyat on Tuesday, which among others, expands the definition of domestic violence and prevents gaps in protection for survivors. Tan Heang Lee, the Communications Officer for the Women's Aid Organisation, walks us through all the amendments that have been tabled, discusses other areas that also need to be covered under the Law, and finally elaborates on the important need to ensure effective enforcement of these new laws.
