Gender equality requires a whole-of-society effort to empower every woman to "freely realise" her full potential and participation in society, said MP He Ting Ru. Making the call in Parliament in a motion filed by Workers' Party MPs on Tuesday (Aug 3), she stressed the need to act immediately on appropriate policies even as Singapore is finding its way out of the COVID-19 pandemic. She expressed concerns that women across different societies around the world have been disproportionately affected economically, mentally and physically by the changes and disruptions brought about by COVID-19.
