Gender Equal Citizenship for Malaysians
Bina Ramanand, Lead Coordinator & Co-Founder, Foreign Spouses Support Group (FSSG) | Suri Kempe, Programme Manager, Musawah
Malaysia is one of only 25 countries that denies Malaysian women the right to confer nationality on their children on an equal basis as Malaysian men. Many are calling for Malaysia to amend the federal constitution to allow both men and women to confer their citizenship on their children born outside of Malaysia through the same process. We find out more from Bina Ramanand, the Lead Coordinator and Co-founder of the Foreign Spouses Support Group (FSSG) and Suri Kempe, the Programme Manager of Musawah.
