A Woman For Women

At 72, Dr Kanwaljit Soin is still bubbling with energy, dedicating her time to her patients while selflessly giving back to society

As founder member of the Association of Women for Action & Research (AWARE), United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) Singapore and the Women’s Initiative for Ageing Successfully (WINGS), Orthopedic and Hand surgeon Dr Kanwaljit Soin is a strong advocate for women’s rights in Singapore. She questioned the gender implications on government policies when she became the first female Nominated Member of Parliament in 1992.  “According to some estimates, I asked the most questions in parliament; even now they haven’t gone over the mark,” she recalled. One of her landmark achievements was moving the Family Violence Bill in 1995, which resulted in the Personal Protection Orders for domestically abused victims.

Dr Soin has also been the president of the International Women’s Forum (IWF) and is a Global Ambassador of HelpAge international – a British organisation that serves disadvantaged elderly globally. She is recognised for her efforts, having received numerous awards such as the Women of The Year Award in Singapore and the Lifetime Achievement Award. 

When asked how she keeps her fire burning, she smiled, “I’m just energised by it. I feel that when you come into the world, you must make the world a better place before you leave it so that your life has been worthwhile. I want to be a mother, wife, doctor and a social activist because together they make my life meaningful.”
