Does the 12MP Address Gender Inequality & Inequity?

On the 27th of September, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob unveiled the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) in Parliament. The 12th Malaysia Plan which is to be implemented over the next 5 years, is basically a document containing the Malaysian government’s socio economic plans and aspirations for the country. 

With that in mind, how much does the 12th Malaysia Plan focus on gender equity & equality -- how much does it focus on empowering women?
