"I AM AWARE" is an initiative by AWARE (Association of Women for Action and Research), Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy group, to raise the awareness and understanding of gender-related issues that are close to our hearts.

AWARE believes in a society where there is true gender equality - where women and men are valued as individuals free to make informed and responsible choices about their lives. Through research and advocacy, education and training, and support services, AWARE seeks to remove all gender-based barriers, whether structural, attitudinal, or self-imposed, that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realising their personal visions and hope.

Since its formation in 1985, AWARE has carried out research into numerous issues affecting women, including workplace sexual harassment, poverty of older women and Singapore's compliance with UN anti-gender discrimination standards.
