"...you see people as themselves. The fact that these women have come such a long way in realising their dream is moving people and encouraging them to watch it"
- Philip Cheah, Festival Director (Singapore Int'l Film Festival) on the popularity of the documentary

About the Documentary

One of the few documentaries ever made about lesbians in Singapore, this documentary, filmed in 2006 uses interview footage with three Singaporean lesbians -Amanda Lee, Sabrina Renee Chong and Gea Swee Jean, to get a rare glimpse into lesbian lives in Singapore.

Intimate and often candid, these lesbians share about their lives and loves and their views on topics such as coming out and relationships. Sometimes heartbreaking, and often times, funny, the documentary captures the lives of lesbians who have chosen to live authentically and is a testament to the courage, tenacity and experiences of lesbians living in Singapore.

Review by Peizhi

"Have you ever walked down the street, looked at someone and
wondered about their life? Wondered if they've gone through the
same happiness, the same sadness, the same discrimination as you?
I have..

WOMEN who LOVE WOMEN gave me an insight into 3 women's
lives. These women shared about their family, friends, lovers and
coming out etc. The documentry felt like a nice old blanket. Comfortable
and familiar. Here were 3 women I could identify with. I have gone
through bits and pieces of their life. In a way, it made me happy to
know that I'm not alone in facing all these problems and obsticles.
This documentry have given lesbians not only a voice, but also a face.

This documentry did not portray 3 women as just lesbians; a label
but as human beings leading happy and contented lives, just like
everyone else on the street. It is heartening to know there are lesbians
out there who have found strength and courage to tell their story. So as
my friend always says, I'm a woman, hear me roar!
