There is a widely held adage that young men are the nation’s hope and young women the nation’s pillar. To this effect, the government has established various nation-building programmes and policies to encourage the involvement of women and youth.

The fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, discusses “The Role of Women and Youth in National Development” at the tenth Perdana Discourse Series. His speech touches on the importance of involving women in a nation’s economy (even that of a Muslim nation), the gender imbalances in universities, the problems of youth, and the challenges faced by today’s busy families.

Drawing on his own experience, as well as elaborating on the concerns of government, Tun Dr Mahathir delivers a frank and personal take on the subject of women and youth.
