Speaking up for Older Women at CEDAW 2017


The Tsao Foundation and the Women’s Initiative for Ageing Successfully (WINGS) submitted a joint report on the Status of Older Women in Singapore at the 68th session of the United Nations Committee for the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

The report is part of the Foundation’s continuing advocacy for improving the financial security of women, who generally have a longer average lifespan than men but whose caregiving responsibilities and social circumstances often leave them without independent means and enough resources for their later life.

Ms Susana Harding, director of the Tsao Foundation’s International Longevity Centre Singapore also spoke at the session held in Geneva in late Oct 2017.
