Introducing the AWARE Awards

Do you know someone who has excelled in an industry typically dominated by the opposite sex? Can you name someone who has made it easier for men and women to break free from gender stereotypes? Is there someone you know who has been working tirelessly to make women’s lives better?

We want to know who they are. Find out how to nominate people for the inaugural AWARE Awards here.


Faith and gender roles

The role women play within different faiths is one of the most urgent issues facing the world today. Find out AWARE's take on the plans to set up the Obedient Wives Club in Singapore here. Academic Mohd Imran Mohd Taib argues against the Club's view of Islam here. Read more about gender roles in different religions here.


How she became indomitable

From prosecuting more sex traffickers than the Nepal government to helping former sex workers start new lives, activist Anuradha Koirala is living proof that nothing is impossible. Learn more about her work here.



Come for AWARE's Book & Bake sale!

Join us on at the AWARE Centre on July 9. We will be selling second-hand items donated by members and friends of AWARE. There will also a small cafe were you can buy baked goods and tea or coffee to enjoy while looking over your new purchases. Find out more here.


Roundtable Discussion: Making a difference for animals

On July 21, we will discuss  animal welfare issues pertinent to Singapore and learn more about how our everyday lives and activities impact the welfare of animals. Register for this event here.
