The forum on “Women and the Law – Know your Rights” is a full-day programme where we hope to create awareness on the status of women’s rights in so far as it has been provided for and achieved to date within the context of the laws in Malaysia. We hope to stimulate healthy discussion on the related issues so that women in general know and understand their rights within the Law.  

The Guiding Principle of Zonta International, its Districts and its Clubs is that Women’s Rights are Human Rights, essential for the development of all People. Zonta International endorses the values expressed in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights
