During the Movement Control Order (MCO) in 2020, her department released a set of recommendations on 30 March for married women which encouraged women at home to dress up, apply makeup, take up more chores, as well as "speak with a high pitched voice" similar to that of the cartoon character Doraemon as well as giggle coyly at their husbands - all for the sole purpose of avoiding domestic arguments.
Critics from NGOs such as the All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) as well as the general public slammed her for not focusing on the increase of domestic abuse, the welfare of women who may be forced to shelter in place in abusive relationships, and to release what is perceived as a sexist set of recommendations.
