Abstract: In an endless debate over whether it is better to be married or to be single, the married have always gotten far more favourable attention than the singles do. Exaggerated claims about the benefits of marrying are commonplace, leading to those who are single - whether by choice or circumstances - feeling conscious, discriminated and left-out by society. Contextualised against the backdrop of Singaporean females, this project aims to critique the existing stigmatisation of women who are single. By identifying the negative stereotypes and prejudice faced by single Singaporean females, this project hopes to highlight the underlying discrimination against singles in our modern society - Singlism.
