EDM's latest book in The Straits Times

Posted on the 9th April 2015 by Lindsay

Check out the article in today's Straits Times on EDM's latest publication Chinese Women's Association: 100 Fabulous Years. The article is on page B5 of the Home section.

The CWA is celebrating its hundredth anniversary this year and has published the book to mark this momentous occasion.

The founder members of the CWA were modern-minded women, one of which was Mr Lee Kuan Yew's aunt, Dr Lee Choo Neo. Dr Lee was Singapore's first female doctor. The Straits Times article focuses on her.

The book was launched last night at the National Museum with guest of honour Ms Ho Ching. Check back in the next couple of days for photos of the fabulous event.
