At a time when the pursuit of full-time employment was highly frowned upon and choosing to be a homemaker was seen as an unquestionable sacrifice, Tan Sri Aishah Ghani proved that women are able to excel as leaders and stateswomen.
Simultaneously nurturing her family and a nation, Tan Sri Aishah Ghani served as an exemplary individual who showcased her ability to play multiple roles apart from the one what was expected of her as a woman.
Her loss is greatly felt by SIS, who will fondly remember her as an ardent advocate for women’s rights. An agent of change that has transformed the lives of many women through her principles and courage to stand against the norm, Tan Sri Aishah Ghani’s passing is a loss to the nation.
SIS extends our thoughts and prayers are with Aishah‘s family and friends at this most difficult time. May her legacy live on through the relentless pursuit of justice and equality for women.
