Singapore has transformed from a poor third world country into a first world one within half a century. The rapid economic development has triggered tremendous social changes, among which are the surging entrance of women in the workforce and their changing roles in the society. As more and more Singapore women (referring citizens and permanent residents throughout this essay) receive better education and have the desire to work for financial independence and career advancement, the traditional expectations emphasizing women’s roles and responsibilities within family have imposed great pressure upon them.
