The Singapore Council of Women's Organisations (SCWO) is honouring not just a few, but 108 remarkable women, from female rights activists to influential professionals and a housewife who has cared for dozens of abused children.

The national co-ordinating body of women's groups here, the Council is launching a virtual Singapore Women's Hall of Fame on March 14 to mark International Women's Day, which falls on March 8, or this Saturday.

Its president Laura Hwang said: "We want to make sure that these women's lives are documented as they are so significant and inspiring and they can serve as role models, especially to the younger generation."

The SCWO is expanding on an initiative which it started in 2005.
