Forum on Mixed Marriage: Women Rights

Mixed marriage is a marriage between persons of different racial, ethnic, cultural or religious groups. Sarawak has a rich tradition of cross cultural marriage which, with increased mobility, has become more common. This forum will highlight and explore areas needing attention to strengthen women’s rights when they engage or disengage from such unions be they with other Malaysians or foreigners in different aspects i.e. culturally, legally and nationality.

Hence, Sarawak Women for Women Society is inviting the public to join the next forum in their Women for Progress Series to discuss the situation here in Malaysia.  

Entitled Mixed Marriage: Women Rights, three panellists will address the issue. They are: lawyer and women activist Honey Tan Lay Ean who will share on the legal perspectives involved in mixed marriages; Erin Aronnyzer Sineng-Jamelin who will be sharing her own intercultural stories and experiences and Wendy Terang who will speak on the legal and cultural perspectives on mixed marriages and women rights in Adat laws.   

The forum will start at 2.00 pm on Saturday November 24th. The venue will be at TEGAS Digital Innovation Hub (above Izakaya), ICOM Square, Kuching.

People interested can register for free by emailing or texting their name to SWWS on info@sarswws.org  or 013 8044 285.
