The virtual Singapore Women's Hall of Fame will be launched on Friday but work on it began two years ago.

The ball started rolling when nine researchers from the Singapore Council of Women's Organisations (SCWO) started searching the National Library and other archives to look for women who have made an impact in Singapore.

SCWO president Laura Hwang said: "We wanted to show a diversity of women in various fields. What is key is that the women must be pioneers, first in their fields, or have significant contributions. We have a whole list of must-haves, including the X-factor."
