My Personal Assets Map
Theories cannot be compared to what you experience personally before. I have been through heavily contested divorce and the problems that came along together with the broken down marriage. I survived mentally to tell my story...numerous times. I will continue to do so, family laws have to be improvised to protect women. My liability can be turned into my asset. I am an example myself. I can encourage fellow women going through the same turmoils like me. Many women are experiencing what I have gone through before. Husbands having affairs, some might have even been through even worse than me. Joining online voluntary groups and women groups like UN Women, World Pulse and AWARE Singapore seemed to be what I should choose during my lowest moment in life. I continue to be part of this movement as advocating for women's rights is a never-ending job, not only for myself but for many other women. I continue to maintain my online presence in social media ( volunteering with Red Elephant Foundation ), particpating in tweet chats in relevant topics with Sayfty, writing in my feedback in forums such as Reach Singapore. In the midst of my challenging matrimonial problems, I did ever join the grassroots for my appeal case, even signing up as PAP ruling party's women wing. There were so many solutions that I thought of but losing myself, my dignity and financially as well as my matrimonial flat were what I experienced. Through my voluntary exposure with women's groups worldwide, I believe there are so much more that needs to be continually done for women's economic and other forms of empowerment which should still be championed. The gender gap is still wide even though we are already in 21st century. I can be a listening ear, I am understanding and champion for us.
