To empower queer women towards greater involvement and presence in the community
OUR VISION
Advocacy for LBTQ women's rights at CEDAW
Sayoni was at the United Nations in Geneva in October 2017 to bring Singapore LBTQ women's issues to the forefront. The CEDAW Committee heard our concerns and raised recommendations related to LBTQ women in their Concluding Observations for the Singapore government.
Slider
Sayoni is a Singapore-based feminist, volunteer-run organisation that works to uphold human rights protections for queer women, including lesbian, bisexual and transgender women. We organise and advocate for equality in well-being and dignity regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression and sex characteristics.

We believe that everyone has a part to play in improving the lives of LBTQ people. Donate or volunteer with us.

The nominations for Singapore’s first gender equality awards were made by members of the public, as

well as members of AWARE. Each nominee has made a significant contribution to promoting gender

equality. For the judges, the key factors for deciding of the shortlist were the effort and impact of the

nominee’s contribution and the nominee’s identification with gender equality.

 

The judging panel comprised: AWARE board member and education entrepreneur Lindy Ong, playwright Eleanor Wong, journalist Ong Soh Chin, academic Philip Holden
and ambassador-at-large Professor Tommy Koh.

The winners will be unveiled at AWARE's Big Ball fundraising gala on October 17.
