系列 World Scientific series on Singapore : 50 years of nation-building
World Scientific series on Singapore's 50 years of nation-building
附註 Includes bibliographical references
"Explores and documents how women's roles, choices, and voices in Singapore have changed in the last 50 years; how women, from all sectors of society, have helped to shape the Singapore we know today. The 31 chapters, some with a more academic slant, others with a distinctly personal tone, reflect the rich diversity and depth of women's contributions to Singapore's evolution in the last half century, and also point to the problematical areas that still need attention. The perspectives in this book are provided by three generations of women, and they put a human face--the woman's face--to the tremendous changes in Singapore society over the past 50 years. The authors include some of Singapore's most accomplished women in many different fields--Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob, political scientist and diplomat Chan Heng Chee, global women's activist Noeleen Heyzer, sociologist and politician Aline Wong, food ambassador Violet Oon, sports legend Pat Chan, law lecturer and playwright Eleanor Wong, and novelist Meira Chand"-- Provided by publisher
