Asiah Abd Jalil, One of Our Malaysia’s Mothers of Dragons, as Breaker of Chains

“MY FATHER said, maybe this is God’s will that you’re meant to be a housewife, that’s why you failed to become a lawyer. So the first step I took was to make sure everybody knows that I will not listen to the men in my life. So you cannot control me by controlling the men in my life.”—Asiah Abd Jalil, lawyer, breaker of chains, mother of dragons, Malaysia
