Shamsiah Fakeh (born 1924- died 20th of October, 2008) was a Malaysian nationalist and feminist. She was the leader of Angkatan Wanita Sedar (AWAS), Malaysia’s first nationalist women organization. Her political awakening started when she was a student in Kuala Pilah. She often attended meetings sponsored by UMNO and this started her nationalist fervor. She was a fiery orator and this led her to be scouted by both UMNO and the Malay Nationalist Party (Partai Kebangsaan Melayu Malaya; PKMM). She chose to join PKMM because she believed it was more dedicated to the struggle for Malaya’s independence; UMNO, in her view, was the puppet of the British. In 1946, she was asked to lead PKMM’s women wing, AWAS. When the Malayan Emergency was declared in 1948, Shamsiah joined the predominantly ethnic-Malay 10th Rejiment of the Malayan Communist Party.
