Breaking Down The Anti-Sexual Harassment Bill

The long-awaited Anti Sexual Harassment Bill, which was first tabled in 2018, has finally been approved by the Dewan Rakyat. So we break down the bill itself, and how it’s changed over the years. Then, we get into the special tribunal that's going to be set up to file claims against perpetrators, and why it's important to have representation.
