Wanita Dalam Penyertaan dan Pemberdayaan Politik di Malaysia: Kes PRU14 dan Selanjutnya​

This working monograph comprises three papers covering various aspects of the gender question in Malaysia’s 14th General Election (GE14), and is based on case studies of five states namely Perlis, Penang, Selangor, Johor and Sabah. Selection of these states was purposive based on their political and geographical significance, but limited also by time and resource constraints, and proximity to the researchers. The first paper by Cecilia Ng is titled, “Women’s Participation in GE14: Penang and Perlis”; the second by tan beng hui is on “Women, Political Participation and GE14: Perspectives from Selangor”; while the third, “Women Candidates and Party Dynamics in the GE14: The case of Johor and Sabah”, is by Maznah Mohamad.

All three discuss women’s involvement in the recent- ly concluded GE14. Each sought to address the issue of women’s underrepresentation in political life by documenting, examining and analysing their experi- ences as they participated, navigated and contested as candidates in these states. In varying degrees, this included how and why women were selected to contest, how they conducted their campaigns, as well as what issues they raised and challenges they encountered in these campaigns. The answers to these, it was hoped, would provide greater insights into how women’s representation can be accelerated towards GE15 and beyond. The findings and conclu- sions were derived through a combination of meth- ods: participant observation, in-depth interviews with candidates, news reports and statistical analysis of election results. The fieldwork commenced sever- al weeks before nomination day on 28 April 2018, up to polling day on 9 May 2018, as well as the post-election period for follow-up interviews.
