“Women may be the one group that grows more radical with age.”
~ Gloria Steinem ~

Brave spaces is in the process of identifying and developing fresh initiatives to engage and support women in Singapore who are in their advanced years. We seek to play a role in facilitating active ageing and retirement for communities on women of intersectional identities, and empower them as valuable members of our society.

As Singapore’s population ages, a larger proportion of women of intersectional identities may face a variety of challenges and require support. With our intersectionalities-focused approach, we aim to develop outreach and support initiatives that will complement the work of state and non-state bodies.

This work includes:

  • Researching and collecting data to develop a deeper understanding of the intersectionalities of these women and the daily challenges they face.
  • Convening a working group to develop a framework
  • Identifying adaptable frameworks, building resource networks and driving collaboration to engage these groups of women.
  • Organising workshops and social gatherings to benefit these women.

We are currently looking for:

  • Volunteer researchers, e.g. students, professionals, retirees
  • Volunteer coordinators, e.g. outreach and engagement, copy writing/editing,
  • Student interns, either majoring in or possess a passion for psychology, social work, communications, gerontology, etc.
