RESEARCH METHODOLOGY The methodology
Feminism is a range of ideas and approaches that seek to create sexual and gender equality for women. It focuses to achieve equal rights for females in different parts of society. Though these feminist movements were successful over the years, there’s a lot left to accomplish before we can say equality between men and women has been reached. All over, women are still at a disadvantage despite their successful liberation campaigns. Since the first feminist movement, women have fought and continue to, in order to gain the rights and opportunities society had deprived them of for generations.
Thus, women’s quest for equality with man is a universal phenomenon. What exists for men is demanded by women? They have demanded equality with men in matters of education, employment, inheritance, marriage, politics and recently in the field of religion also to serve as cleric (in Hinduism and Islam). Women want to have for themselves the same strategies of change which menfolk have had over the centuries such as equal pay for equal work. Their quest for equality has given birth to the formation of many women’s associations and launching of movements.

First, employment of women would increase gender bias in the workplace. “In 1948, the labor force participation rate for women 20 years and older was 32%. By 1970, it had grown to 43%, and by 1997 it had reached to 605. This trend remarkable changes in our economy and society as women dramatically increased their presence in the workforce.
LATE 20TH AND 21ST CENTURY Ask any feminist today and the rights that they are fighting for are mostly similar; equal opportunities in the workplace, equal pay, the rights to one’s own body and the likes. While these themes are recurring in feminist groups across societies, the extra dimension in Malaysia to consider is the supposed discrimination due to added influences from Islam, with the government backing such a stand. Furthermore, after colonial period, women were more aware of their rights to fight for a greater role in society and also due to greater levels of education. This can be seen in the increase in percentage of female enrolment in higher learning institutions from 38.6% in 1980 to 47.5% in 1993 (Ariffin, 2009, p. 168). It is believed that the feminist movement in Malaysia started to come into picture after Malaysia’s independence in 1957 (Amar 2015).
