About Us

Women’s Action is a memory project that documents and celebrates the history of the women’s movement in an independent Singapore. Launched in the year of the country’s fiftieth anniversary, the website covers the Singapore woman’s history through ten themes – presenting the women’s movement as a multi-faceted journey that has affected Singaporean women in many aspects of our daily lives. 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.

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.
