Women in the 20th Century – A Hong Kong Perspective

Women in the Twentieth Century - A Hong Kong Perspective

20th century Hong Kong experienced tremendous societal change, and in few aspects was this transformation more profound and long lasting than in the changing role and status of women. In particular, the public role played by Chinese women altered profoundly during this century, and the effects of greater opportunity in all fields of endeavor continue into the present day.

In this exciting lecture, we will explore the broader international and local circumstances that contributed to this evolution, and track these changes through the fascinating lives and careers of various women from very diverse ethnic backgrounds, educational levels and socio-economic circumstances who all made their homes and lives in Hong Kong.

This talk forms part of an interconnected series.
