Shirin Fozdar was a brilliant women's rights and welfare activist active in her native country India and subsequently Singapore. As a leader in the community, she championed for the founding of the Singapore Council of Women, Singapore's very own Syariah Court and pushed for the Women's Charter to become enacted.
We dedicate this earring to Shirin's determination who travelled the region and dedicated her life to spreading the message of women's right and justice.
The lower two petals of these studs are detachable and can be worn in multiple ways (refer to the last image):
- with or without the leaf backing
- with lead facing front or back for a more 3D effect.
This collection is part of our 'Women of Strength' collection inspired by the Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid, the national flower of Singapore, which was chosen because of its resilience as a species and the ability to bloom all year round. This collection is done in celebration of Singapore's Bicentennial and uses the Orchid as a symbol to represent strength and resilience.
