How can we come together to collectively empower, protect, and uplift women in Singapore?

TL;DR

Singapore women have made great strides in areas such as education, economic status, and representation in the Government.

While current laws and policies have helped to empower, protect and uplift women, how can they evolve to better meet the needs and aspirations of Singapore women? 

From September 2020 to September 2021, the Ministry of Social and Family Development, together with partner organisations from the Government, people and private sectors, organised a series of 160 conversations to hear from Singaporeans. 

Feedback and recommendations from these sessions would culminate in a White Paper – to be unveiled later in 2022 – and set out policy recommendations with a roadmap towards gender equality. 

Listen to PM Lee Hsien Loong’s remarks at the closing session of the Conversations on Singapore Women’s development.
