Purge schools of sexist teachers, say PH women leaders

PETALING JAYA: Two Pakatan Harapan (PH) women leaders have expressed their disgust that the authorities have not taken immediate action against a secondary school teacher who is alleged to have made “rape jokes” to students during a discussion on sexual harassment.

In urging education minister Radzi Jidin to “wake up from his slumber” and act immediately, the duo said such actions by teachers will become the norm if left unchecked or the culprit is let off scot free.

DAP’s Kasthuri Patto and PKR’s Fadhlina Siddiq said that making fun of rape offences is very unbecoming of teachers who are actually entrusted to impart knowledge on the dangers of such an action to the students.

Kasthuri, who said such actions by teachers could be just the tip of the iceberg, urged schools to stop protecting their teaching staff involved in making sexist comments.
