ARE MALES COMPETENT TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS WHEN IT COMES TO MOBILITY ISSUES IN THEIR DAY TO DAY LIVES? (And if not or dubious how to fix this?)

Penang _ meeeting of state government with SRS consotium 15 aug. 2015

I ask this group the following.

(1) Is it possible for men and male-dominated decision fora and processes in general to plan and implement efficient and fair mobility policy and practice for women and girls?

(2) Are the planning and decision fora in Penang largely dominated at present by males?

(3) In your view should women and women’s group organize to support a state-wide movement to full gender parity in the transport sector? Starting on Monday morning?

(Please share your thought, including on the COMMENT link here.)

    Bring women to the decision-making table and let them make their own decisions–men hardly have any idea of what women’s plight is, they should stop considering themselves knowledgeable, capable of everything. they must stop messing up with women’s lives and rights.
