Feminist Activism in Hong Kong
Chapter in an edited book (author)


Other information
AbstractIn this chapter, we will offer an overview of feminist activism of Hong Kong before and after 1997 and in particular, focus on the emerging issues and challenges in the aspects of cross-border politics, ethnicity and class. It is hoped that the experience of Hong Kong, especially that in the postcolonial period, can demonstrate the possibilities of feminist struggle at a time when overall political freedom is at risk, and how feminist movement is an integral part of the fight for democracy.
