Women can and do play an important role in society .

Media statement by M. Kula Segaran MP Ipoh Barat and DAP National Vice Chairman in Ipoh on 30th June 2013

Women can and do play an important role in society .

It is a known  fact that in comparison with other races, the Indians have the highest rates in suicide, unemployment, single mothers and the like which are affecting the Indian community.

The DAP Ipoh Barat recently organized a medical talk in Tamil in Buntong, Ipoh 

We are very grateful to Dr. Shoba who agreed and spoke to over 100 women on the medicial issues affecting the women community. We are very happy many women who attended the function also posed many medical questions which were very well answered by Dr. Shoba in Tamil.

This programme was the brain child of Sdr.Wasoo and Sdri. Sri Dewi and their team of women volunteers. At the talk some beautification issues were also explained. 

Also we have sucessfully launched the Ipoh Barat Women wing. The main new women leaders are Sdri. Bakiavathi, Sdri. Sakacya, Sdri. Annamal, Sdri. Up Vaneswari Sdri. Jeevita, Sdri. Mary, Sdri. Terassa and Sdri. Indria Gandhi.

We realise the women can and do play an important role in society. Although women consist of nearly 50% of the voters in our country , very few women are active in the political arena. For the first time in the 2013 elections,  we have a Tamil woman elected to the state assembly namely Sdri. Kamachee and Sdri. Katsura Patto as MP for Batu Kawan. We are proud and congratulate them for getting elected. 

We want to expand the role of women especially Indian women in politics. Thus we are inviting and encouraging women of all races to come and join us and participate in our other women events which we will be organising regularly.
