Women’s Action


PSA: Women’s Action, a memory project that documents and celebrates the history of the women’s movement in an independent Singapore, launched this weekend! It covers the Singapore woman’s history through ten themes with original videos and photo essays, archival pictures, and researched stories. It is really a spectacular resource.*

Two themes—Education and Civil Society and Activism—are live, but bookmark the site for all nine. “The interweaving of certain events and milestones across the ten themes is also testament to the many ways in which women’s issues cannot be separated from the rest of society, and how we are always connected in our journey,” say the project’s team.

The project is spearheaded by the Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), and is funded by the Singapore Memory Project’s irememberSG fund as part of SG50 Celebrations.
