AWARE members Adeline Koh and Yu-Mei Balasingamchow are putting together a volume of academic essays on women in Singapore and Malaysia, and are looking for volunteer research assistants.

This publication, which will be titled Troublesome Women In Asia: The Politics Of Women, Gender & Sexuality In Singapore & Malaysia, is supported by AWARE and Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, USA.

Details for Research Assistant position:
