Women’s Empowerment

Lest we forget! It has been a mere 60 years that the Singapore Women ’s Charter was passed. This legislative act aims at protecting and advancing the rights of women and girls in our country.

Besides the law, I am grateful for my grandmother and mother to be among the pioneer Nonya women who ventured beyond the kitchen & the sewing room and seized the opportunity to get a formal education. My mother even secured jobs in multi-national companies, a result of an “I dare you” challenge issued by her father. She worked for 26 years and helped my dad to support us.

Today as a Straits-born Chinese or Peranakan woman, I have the freedom of choice and opportunity to do what I want – not forgetting my husband and sparring partner who has given me the liberty to have a long & eventful
career as well as a loving family.
