Stories of loss, longing, betrayal and endurance. More than 200,000 of Singapore’s 3-million strong labor force work as low-wage Foreign Domestic Workers (FDWs). 27 of these FDWs have collaborated with CARE and H.O.M.E by lending their voices to an exhibition titled Respect Our Rights, Voices of Foreign Domestic Workers. This digital storytelling exhibit not only allows these women to build skills and represent themselves, but also provides/allows the viewer a look into the everyday lives of an under-represented and often mistreated demographic. We invite you to a behind the scenes talk to witness the stories and share in the lives of Foreign Domestic Workers at the first viewing of this photo exhibition - Respect Our Rights, Voices of Foreign Domestic Workers - with the hope that awareness of the issues they face will result in the better treatment of FDWs.

Singapore Committee for UN Women is calling on youth between the ages of 7 and 16 for submissions to our Sheroes 2015 competition: Send us a photo of your Shero with a paragraph telling us why you admire her and how this inspires you to fight to end violence against women by Wednesday the 25th of November 2015 at youthteam @ unifem.org.sg

Recognising our amazing Sheroes is a step in combatting the normalisation of violence and is in line with our Help Anna campaign, an initiative to raise awareness about the different types of violence women of all backgrounds are exposed to.
