Committee of Supply 2019 debate, Day 4: Lim Sun Sun on support for women in male-dominated tech sector

(Updated: )

Crash-test dummies based on the average male’s physique and ill-fitting armour that fails to protect policewomen - NMP Lim Sun Sun cited these examples to make the point that women need to play a bigger role in the male-dominated technology sector. She said the “needs of all, and not half of humanity” must be reflected, and urged the Government to make sure that women are given every opportunity to shape the technology and design sector. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Mar 5), she suggested initiatives such as incubation schemes for innovators and incentives to upgrade skills.
