Selamat Hari Raya, readers! If you’re not out celebrating this and eating all the Raya food you want, I hope you’re having a good day off.

By Hannah Azlan Welcome to One Last Thing – The Level’s dedicated column to women’s issues and where I condense all my weekly ranting from various social media outlets into an article. If you think I’ve missed something or you’d like to bring something to my attention, you can hit me up on Twitter or email me at hannah@thelevel.my Right, I think the whole Taylor Swift vs. Kim Kardashian/Kanye West thing has been done to death. Every single news portal has covered at least one aspect (or like, all of them) over the last week. But, I’ll touch on...
