"This book provides a scholarly overview of women's status in Hong Kong from a gender perspective. The contributors are associated with the Gender Research Programme at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The chapters offer substantive analyses on the indicators of women's status, including education, work, division of domestic labour, gender roles, women's movement, and public policies affecting women. The historical-cultural context of women's status and the cross-cultural relevance of women's studies are also examined. This book embraces both longitudinal as well as cross-sectional perspectives, and includes both quantitative and qualitative materials. It is not only a scholarly document on Chinese women in Hong Kong, but also a statement marking their changing status. Readers interested in women's issues, gender studies, and Chinese studies will find this book a useful reference."--BOOK JACKET.
