Book: Cerita Kak Wan, Citra Pesona Seorang Wanita
Author: Zahiruddin Zabidi
“In this book, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, or better known as Kak Wan, not only shares about her childhood, education, career, and family, but also how she transformed herself from a medical doctor and wife of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, into a politician. After her husband was arrested in 1998, she became leader of the fledgling Reformasi movement and established the Parti Keadilan Nasional on 4 April 1999, becoming its first President. Her journey as Opposition politician has been tumultuous and long, but the hardship has been rewarded. In 2018, with the win of Pakatan Harapan in the nation’s general elections, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah became Malaysia’s Deputy Prime Minister, the first woman to ever hold the post in the country’s history. If you want to know more about Kak Wan, I recommend this book as an essential addition to your bookshelf.”

“Antara hujah yang dikemukakan Kak Wan ialah, Bagaimana mahu mengubah sistem sedia ada yang masih menggunakan doctor lelaki bagi menyambut kelahiran bayi daripada seorang ibu muslim jika tiada tenaga mahir daripada kalangan doctor wanita yang mencukupi?” (Page 58)
