WomenTalkTV was created in 2013 by its host, Eunice Olsen, a former Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP) in Singapore as well as a television host and actress.

WomenTalk TV

WomenTalk TV interviews are hosted by Eunice. TV interviews focus on the particularly adversities faced by each of the women and how they have overcome them. All of the interviews also end with the women explaining what empowerment means to them. Each interview subject is able to nominate a charitable organisation to which viewers are encouraged to make donations. Viewers are then encouraged to upload their own videos documenting how they overcame personal struggles or that of other women they know.

WomenTalk Pulse

WomenTalk Pulse interviews feature the women alone. Pulse interviews showcase the projects that the women have initiated. Each interview also shares a call-to-action the woman would like to involve viewers, whether through donations, volunteering, or awareness. Similar to a TV episode, each woman shares their definition of empowerment.

WomenTalk Soul

Each WomenTalk Soul program and host focuses on a particular aspect of wellness: food and nutrition, exercise, happiness and wellness. Episodes are either conversational or hosted, each typically less than 2 minutes. WomenTalk Soul aims to be accessible for everyday women, whether they are mothers to children with special needs, working single ladies, or the elderly, introducing tips that cheap and easy to introduce into everyday lives, to allow viewers to achieve the full potential.
