Representations of Gender in Malaysian Malay Cinema: Implications for Human Security
The Human Development Report in 1994 redefines human security as people-centered and suggests that it is easier to ensure through early prevention (see www.undp.org/hdro/hdrs/1994/english/94.htm). For most people, insecurity comes from the concerns about their survival, self-preservation, and wellbeing in a day-to-day context. When associated with gender, these concerns are manifested in the form of gender injustice, specifically when one sex dominates and oppresses another in many ways and by various means. In most societies today, it is women who feel more insecure than men. This is no wonder as the alarming statistics on violence and crime against women around the world often illustrate (for reports on Malaysia, see Wencelaus Dana, 2004; Rashila and Junaenah, 2004).
