Sexism in Singapore Law - "Slander of women"

Section 509 of the Penal Code (Word or gesture intended to insult the modesty of a woman) is bad enough, but someone draws my attention to Section 4 of the Defamation Act:

"Slander of women.
4. Words spoken and published which impute unchastity or adultery to any woman or girl shall not require special damage to render them actionable."

Well done.
