The Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame (SWHF) is a celebration of the outstanding women who have made, or are making, an impact on our nation. They are the boundary breakers and record holders, the risk-takers and change-makers, the role models and standard setters.
In 2005, the SCWO launched The Wall of Fame to honour Singapore’s pioneering women activists, and by 2010, there were 9 inductees.
The SWHF, after two years of extensive research, was launched on 14 March 2014, with an inaugural list of 108 inductees, to recognise the achievements and contributions of Singapore’s most outstanding women in all fields of endeavour. More are inducted each year at a gala dinner in March to mark International Women’s Day.
Celebrate the achievements and tell the stories, hitherto often untold, of Singapore’s phenomenal women.
Document the myriad contributions of women to the shaping of Singapore.
Showcase the values that drive our outstanding women and that SCWO upholds.
Share the stories and values and inspire others, especially young Singaporeans, to dare to dream and to chart their own path.
