"Enough of being undervalued, enough of being undermined, enough of being disrespected, because of our gender."

The global #metoo movement blew up in October 2017, and conversations about sexual harassment, sexism and gender discrimination are taking place everywhere, including Singapore. From workplaces, to closed-door forums, to media editorials, many are contributing to these discussions.

But this goes beyond just talk.

AWARE has set up the #metoo Action Fund to support new initiatives and AWARE's existing programmes to:
a) end sexual assault, harassment and gender discrimination in the workplace; and
b) to support and empower all survivors of sexual harassment and assault.

In particular, the fund will help us:

a) Expand the outreach and capacity of the Sexual Assault Care Centre, Singapore's only one-stop support centre for survivors of sexual violence, and other services to support survivors

b) Collaborate with other stakeholders - e.g. employers and institutions - to make systemic changes towards reducing and ensuring accountability for workplace harassment and sexual violence

c) Carry out research to identify gaps and opportunities in the system in relation to harassment and gender discrimination in the workplace, and sexual violence

d) Provide education on sexual violence, consent and gender inequality to workplaces, schools, communities and the general public.

Take action to end sexual violence in all its forms. Support AWARE's #metoo Action Fund today.

About the Charity

The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services. In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category. The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices. AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
