A butterfly flutters its wings as it lands on the trouser leg of a woman soldier in army fatigues.
The first frame of a trailer for a new cyberpioneer TV series on women soldiers hints at the transformation that the women are in for from the training.
Into The Fray - The Making Of A Female Soldier documents the journey of women soldiers during their Basic Military Training (BMT).
There are about seven episodes, and each is seven minutes long.
A post of the trailer, shared on the CyberPioneer Facebook page on Jan 19, has been viewed more than 49,000 times.
The clip shows them training with their SAR21 rifles, doing pull-ups and going through obstacle courses.
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) has been recruiting more women as career soldiers as the pool of male enlistees shrinks, reports have said.
There are about 1,500 female combatants making up 7.5 per cent of SAF's regulars, according to figures from 2013.
Catch the first episode at www.youtube.com/user/cyberpioneertv, from 6pm on Thursday, Jan 22.
Each episode will be aired on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. An additional episode will be aired if there is a fifth Thursday that month.
My Chief Clerk's nehneh sibeh tualiap leh! :D
Stand beside her always can see her bra from the side of her uniform top.
Is this about feminism or chiobu??

female tank drivers ... just imagine ...
Those that i did get a chance to meet constantly seemed like they were trying to prove something. Like they had to behave in a certain way in order to gain respect and recognition.
Then again, it's only natural that they would choose to do so. There are only a handful of armies in the world where men and women are truly considered equal. It's still considered ahead of its time, but people now believe equal conscription is one attribute of a society with 'true equal rights' between members of both genders.
Of course it would be 'shiok-ing' best if you can do action together with them like this :

I have a female friend currently serving the nation and i think she look pretty cool in uniform. In the beginning, she was complaining of people looking down on ladies just because they are deem to be weaklings. But those people are now looking up on her and she is gaining respects from her men. *Thumbs up*
Some female regulars peform better than the males in terms of PT
Completely indifferent. Sure, why not?
