Women Members of Parliament

A/P Fatimah Lateef (Since 2006)

  • Member of Parliament, Marine Parade GRC

"Politics to me represents the AIM: The Aspiration to bring the populace together, to build a cohesive and harmonious society through common vision and goals

To Inspire others to be the best they can be in any field or discipline, and

To conduct the Management or executive functions of being in politics

Having been involved in community, grassroots, volunteer and humanitarian work in the last 20 years, I have concluded that "serving Humanity is the best work of life". This ties in with my work as a specialist in the medical profession. Those of us given the opportunity to lead must do so with conviction, passion, empathy and very sound ground knowledge. Nothing must ever be taken for granted."

With Accolades such as The Outstanding Young Person of The World Award 2006 (Junior Chamber International) and Woman for Peace Award 2006 (Soka Gakkai), Dr Fatimah is passionate about her work and champions formal volunteerism. With over 20 years of experience in community and humanitarian work at the local and international arena, the issues close to her heart include:

  • Emergency preparedness at the community, institution and national levels
  • Assisting the low-income, the "sandwich class" and the socially challenged groups, including youths with problems
  • The promotion of literacy and education, as well as lifelong training and continual learning
  • Promotion of healthy lifestyle and conscious living, improving Singapore's healthcare indices as well as spreading preventive health messages and keeping healthcare cost affordable
  • Women's issues including gender discrimination and work-life balance
  • The promotion of arts and culture and preservation of our heritage
