Rewang with Archipelagirl


Guest: Margaret Thomas (AWARE)

It’s rewang time with the Archipela-girls! ⁠

Get to know Archipelagirl and their work before an interview with a special guest — Margaret Thomas of AWARE whose trailblazing work in feminist activism has led to the organization’s 35th anniversary this week with AWAREFest.

Margaret delves into the beginnings of AWARE, along with insights into her early career as a business journalist, the undercurrent of feminist activism in Singapore dating back to the 1950s, and why kiasu culture (and not “cancel culture”) isn’t really good for us.⁠

AWAREFest is happening from 25-29 Nov. Get your tickets here.
