Top 5 At 5: Sexist Textbooks, Kelantan vs the Federal Court, and MH370

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. A theory that sexist textbooks are contributing to the gender gap.

2. The Kelantan state assembly's reintroduction of 16 provisions to the state's Syariah Criminal Court, freshly after they were struck down by the Federal Court.

3. Goodyear's closure of its Shah Alam factory: what does it indicate about our economy?

4. Remembering MH370, 10 years on.

5. A discussion of women's issues and rights in Southeast Asia, in conjunction with International Women's Day.

For these stories, we heard from Professor M Niaz Asadullah, lawyer Fahri Azzat, Dr. Shankaran Nambiar from MIER, independent investigator Blaine Gibson, and Misun Woo of APWLD.
