Publisher Description

1. INTRODUCTION "Women, passive, long-suffering, complicit, have been colonised subjects for centuries" (Lim, 1994: p. 39). This proposition by Shirley Geok-lin Lim provides the basis to why women's experiences should be highlighted. In fact, various issues in relation to women have been studied since the 19th century so that more women are given agency about their subjugated positions. The colonisation of women by the patriarchal beliefs governing the societies results in their inability to act and speak in the way they truly desire. Women's voices are silenced and they are denied existence, consequently, they are marginalised. Hence, women's experiences should be explained to set the agenda for liberating them from this oppressive silence.
