Over the past decade, Singaporean females have experienced strides towards workplace equality as reflected in the Progress on Singapore Women's Development 2024 report. The report reveals a notable increase in the employment rate for Singaporean females aged 25 to 64, showing a rise from 69.2 percent in 2013 to 76.6 percent in 2023. Additionally, the report points out a significant narrowing of the gender employment rate gap to 12.4 percentage points during the same period, signifying a move towards gender parity in the workforce.

In addition to the improvements in employment rates, the report also highlights the increased representation of women in business leadership roles within the top 100 companies listed on the Singapore Exchange. The percentage of women on boards in these companies has tripled from 7.5 percent in 2013 to 22.7 percent by June of the previous year, indicating a positive shift towards more gender-inclusive decision-making processes. Moreover, advancements in healthcare services for women have been noted, with a substantial increase in the number of females aged 15 years who have received the HPV vaccine, rising from 1.3 percent in 2014 to 89.4 percent in 2022.

Furthermore, to address issues of family violence, Singaporean authorities have taken proactive steps by amending the Women's Charter last year. These amendments aim to bolster the government's capacity to intervene in cases of family violence, emphasizing the importance of safeguarding women's well-being and ensuring their protection within the family unit. This legislative adjustment underscores the government's commitment to creating a safe and supportive environment for Singaporean women, reflecting a holistic approach towards gender equality and empowerment.
