This volume, which includes eleven chapters on the most pressing issues concerning women and girls in Hong Kong, is a joint initiative of the Gender Research Centre (GRC) and The Women’s Foundation (TWF). The chapters address the current status and future challenges of women in areas related to education, labour market participation, poverty, health, violence against women, family, leadership, media, ethnic minority and migrant women, the girl-child, and institutional mechanisms of gender equality.

The contributors of this edited volume include twenty scholars in the disciplines of law, psychology, sociology, journalism, public health, social work, political science, criminology, education, business studies, anthropology, and demography in Hong Kong’s higher education institutes. Together they provide a thorough review of the status of women in the aforementioned areas, delineate the causes of persistent inequalities, compare the situations in Hong Kong with those in other developed countries, and make recommendations on policies to reduce gender inequalities.
