Malaysia issues apology after telling women to “stop nagging”

In the past week, the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry in Malaysia posted tips for women on how to behave in the home.

They included:

– Don’t nag your husband.
– Don’t speak in an infantile voice.
-If you must request your husband to do something, adopt the voice of Doraemon (a Japanese cartoon robot cat)
– If you’re working at home, wear makeup and dress neatly, rather than in casual clothes.

The Women, Family and Community Development Ministry have since issued an apology.

“We apologise if some of the tips we shared were inappropriate and touched on the sensitivities of some parties.”

The posters have now been removed.
