Abstract: 本论文是以 1950 年代至今,新加坡妇女组织的成立和演变来探讨新加坡女性地位的改变以及两者的关系。本文主要分成五个章节: 第一章是绪言,第二章到第四章是有关各组织的成立、而最后一章便是分析妇女组织为新加坡女性所带来的社会地位和生活变化与改善。本文将叙述几个妇女组织的成立、它们的宗旨以及它们为新加坡妇女所做出的努力和成果。最后一章便是从不同时期妇女组织的发展与努力考察60 年来新加坡女性地位的变化。从 1950 年代至今,新加坡女性的地位一直是在提高中的,只不过在 1970 年代的作为没有前 20 年有那么显著的突破。一直到了 1980 年代,当新加坡妇女理事会团体成立之后,女性又开始积极地提升自己以及她们的社会地位。到了现今,当我们对比 50 年前的女性,便能看出新加坡女性的生活方式和社会地位有明显的演变。This paper is based on the relationship of Singapore women’s changing status and women’s organizations in Singapore from the 1950s to the present. This paper will also cover different important backgrounds of Singapore that were related to the changing status of Singaporean women and explore women’s organizations that once existed and those that are still in operation in Singapore today. There are five chapters in this paper which includes the introduction, followed by three chapters which will recount the establishment of the women’s organizations in Singapore that will be discussed in this paper. The final chapter will be a detailed analysis of improvements in Singapore’s women's social status and their changes in life which were brought about by the women's organizations in Singapore. Besides the establishment of the women’s organizations in Singapore, this paper will also present the organizations’ missions and values and most importantly the efforts that these organizations made, resulting in a constant improvement of the status of women in Singapore from the 1950s to the present. Although from the 1950s till now, the status of women in Singapore has been improving constantly, but in the 1970s, the improvement of women’s status is not as significant as compared to the past 20 years and from the 1980s and beyond. It was only in 1980 when the Singapore Council of Women’s Organizations was established that encouraged Singaporean women to be more proactive once again in fighting for their own rights to improve their status further. At the end of this paper, when we look back to the lives and statuses of Singaporean women fifty years ago as compared to now, we will be able to notice a distinct progression and improvement of Singaporean women’s lives and statuses.
