4 generations of women across cultures


I was a speaker at a panel presentation of five women from different communities in Singapore talking about four generations of women in their families.
Date: 29 April 2009 (Wed)
Time: 7.30 pm
Venue: American Club, Claymore Hill

The other panelists:
Kel Yap: English teacher
Ivy Singh Lim: Founder of Bollywood Farms
Pina Marziliano: Professor at NTU
Caitlin Fry: President of the American Women's Association (AWA)

The panel was organised by Marjorie Wheatley (a fourth generation New Orleanean). It was the fourth in a series of panels on four generations of women across cultures. The first was at Cornell University in the early 1990s by a panel of five women; the second and third were done at MIT a decade later, one panel from the female perspective and then the following year, one from the male perspective.
