About Us

Women’s Register (WR) was conceived after a year-long public consultation with study groups led by many prominent women in 2005.

A study by SCWO found that there was a need for an initiative to reach out to women to inspire and lead them, as well as educate and harness the power and growing influence of women.

This initiative has gone through a few phases since its inception and has evolved to become a platform for networking, education and inspiration. 

WR was launched by the then Minister of State for Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) Mrs Yu-Foo Yee Shoon in 2007.

It is our vision that young women are connected and supported by fellow women in the community, given inspiration and empowerment to take charge of their lives and lead them with positivity, compassion, courage and determination.

Our role is to create these opportunities, making them accessible through online media, social networking, dialogue sessions and volunteer events.
