In pre-independent Singapore, a group of fearless women risk everything to fight against injustice and discrimination against their gender. Maria Dyer, Shirin Fodzar, Che Zahara, Mrs George Lee and Chan Choy Siong pioneer Singapore's women's movement. They liberate enslaved girl-servants, speak out against underage marriages, campaign for the concept of "one man one wife" and fervently fight for the enactment of a Women's Charter. Channel NewsAsia profiles these trailblazing heroines who set the course for the future of every woman, securing equal rights and opportunities for all.
