Abstract: The issue of low birth rates has always been a persisting concern in Singapore over the past decades, and it seems that while there is a subtle understanding that women should bear the responsibility of starting families early, there is also a desire among women to pursue and excel in their careers and education. This research paper sets out to explore the concept of the ‘third shift’ which is the work of mothering, working and studying simultaneously. The research design is twofold: first is to find out how the identity of Singaporean women is shaped by evaluating the ‘third shift’ phenomena and exploring the reasons that compel them to take on the ‘third shift’; second is an attempt to reason if the ‘third shift’ phenomena could be a possible solution to the issue of low birth rates in Singapore.
