WOMEN OF N.O.W.
Women of N.O.W. is a digital exhibition and is the second in a series of three projects featuring voices of women in society led by Festival of Women: N.O.W. Artistic Director, Noorlinah Mohamed. The series began with Power of Letters (2019), spotlighting women advocates in advancing equal rights for women in Singapore through letter writing to the forum pages of the nation’s newspapers.
In Women of N.O.W., the digital exhibition features the narratives of over 35 women and their socially-conscious and engaged endeavours to connect and support the communities they work with.
Each woman tells a story of early influence and their critical engagement with needs and gaps of diverse communities. From social services, to social cohesion, from education to advocacy, from migrant worker rights to resource management, these women exemplify the commitment to raise awareness of the overlooked gaps in our society. They do this with ingenuity, humour, reflexivity and creativity; each finding different ways to achieve what they need, to benefit the communities they work with.
Exhibition begins 4 June 2020

It amplifies the work that women creatives, change makers, and social champions do to advance issues affecting women at the intersection of gender, class, and race.
