Sexist Remarks About Women Drivers

Bung Mokhtar also made sexist remarks claiming that most women drivers were slow and paid little attention while on the road. "When you honk at them, they get agitated with some even showing hand gestures to other drivers", he said in Parliament. These remarks were widely panned by women's groups in Malaysia.

Bung Mokhtar said that he was being sexually harassed due to the fact that at the time, he was the focus of criticism from women’s rights groups.

Famous quotes containing the words women, sexist and/or remarks:

    The myth of independence from the mother is abandoned in mid- life as women learn new routes around the mother—both the mother without and the mother within. A mid-life daughter may reengage with a mother or put new controls on care and set limits to love. But whatever she does, her child’s history is never finished.
    Terri Apter (20th century)

    Females serve as ever-present reminders to developing males of what they must not become.
    Ethel Strainchamps, U.S. author. Woman in Sexist Society, ch. 16 (1971)

    So, too, if, to our surprise, we should meet one of these morons whose remarks are so conspicuous a part of the folklore of the world of the radio—remarks made without using either the tongue or the brain, spouted much like the spoutings of small whales—we should recognize him as below the level of nature but not as below the level of the imagination.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
