Seven women who are pioneers in social work, public health, sports, aviation and the arts were inducted into the Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame on International Women’s Day on Monday (March 8).
Mrs Santha Bhaskar, a pioneering dancer and choreographer, and representatives of the other six women who were honoured posthumously, received the Hall of Fame trophy from President Halimah Yacob at the Istana on Monday.
President Halimah, who is the patron of the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations (SCWO), said: “Today, I am delighted to induct another seven women to this list. Their contributions may be in different areas – such as in health and community services, the arts, sports, education and aviation – but what they have in common is the determination to excel, to do good and to make a difference in the world.”
