Women have made great strides in Singapore and we are very lucky here to have full protection under the law and to have the Women’s Charter. However, we are still under represented in business and in boardrooms, and this is not for lack of talent. Whilst I have never felt my gender to be an impediment to my progress in my career, I think women need to better support each other on the path to success. Not only do we need to find women to support women, we also need to find men to support women publicly.  Women hold up half the sky and often do more than half the work at home. We need to be less afraid to speak up and stand up and support each other.
