About Identity (III) about Women

The topic our group presented is on the Evolution of Identity of Singapore Women.

More shall appear in the Course Blog.
Some resources (media) that we used - series of songs identifed during the session are as followed. Indeed, it brings out the distinguishing difference (and progress) across the eras:


  1. Superwoman (1988) by Karyn White: Lyrics.
  2. Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison: Lyrics.
  3. I am Woman by Helen Reddy: Lyrics.

MP3 files of these sounds can be found at
