Smacking Sense into Chauvinists Their Own Way (The Rakyat Post)

My comment about the Joint Action Group’s for Gender Equality’s (JAG) social media response to a group of NGOs’ offer to pay anyone RM1,200 to slap Member of Parliament Teresa Kok:

Yu said the decision on campaigning via social media was influenced by the fact that Malaysians were major users of the medium. “Getting the word out is important”.

Ultimately, the objective, Yu said, was sharing the message that Malaysians were not going to accept such behaviour.

“Using visuals is quite effective.”

“We want the law enforcement agencies to take action.”

The Facebook post produced by JAG generated more than 1,600 shares in the two days after it was posted.
