InFocus: Galactic Women

Women's equality has made positive gains but the world is still unequal. International Women's Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action.


But what if we were to look further than Earth? How would women be treated in space? Or even on  another planet?


Tonight on the Evening Edition, we had a couple of very special women to talk to - women who have literally reached for the stars.  
Roshini ‘Rose’ Muniam, Winner Of Axe Apollo Malaysia’s Space Race and Xin Tong Chow, shortlisted as a potential candidate to be amongst the first humans to set foot on Mars.
