Background

  • What’s the fuss about?
    In a nutshell, a prominent secular women’s organisation appears to have been taken over by a religious group who’s core values are not in line with those of the organisation.
    This Straits Times article reports on the event which sparked the controversy: Unknowns knock out veterans at Aware polls.
  • Who are the players?
    • OLD: The old Exco has set up a website here which outlines its position. You can subscribe for updates. This is open to everyone.
    • NEW: Sadly there is no official website for the new Exco however Alice Cheong not to mention the local media has gathered much info
