Trace the steps of inspiring women who left their historical footprint on the island of Singapore. Learn about the rich history of each landmark along the route and how each of the women highlighted have been instrumental in shaping Singapore’s history. 

They are leaders in their own right – from social workers, to diplomats, to doctors, to performers to law makers. From changing laws to protect women, to educating children, to breaking down barriers in the male – dominated arena – these women have made their mark.


The Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame offers a guided tour for this trail. For more information on this trail, please visit www.swhf.sg, or e-mail info@swhf.sg.
