ABOUT THE BOOK

Meet Gunn Chit Wha, a pioneering role model with many firsts: she was one of the first female lawyers of Malaya, one of the first female Municipal Councillors of Kuala Lumpur and the first female State Councillor of Selangor. Now 92, she recounts the blissful and difficult years of her own independence while breaking barriers in the 1950s, a unique time in the country's tumultuous history.
