Educating for Change: Development of Women's/Gender Studies and Its Challenges for Hong Kong While presenting an overview of the development of women's/ gender studies in the West and in Asia, this paper aims to explore what women's/gender studies are, why they are needed and the current issues and debates. In particular, the paper examines the gradual growth of gender studies in Hong Kong as evidenced in a survey of the gender courses offered at various universities. Results indicate that efforts have been made to promote gender studies in the local context despite the formidable difficulties. In light of Western experience and taking into consideration the indigenous conditions, recommendations for future development of gender studies in Hong Kong are made. It is pointed out that the ultimate goal of gender studies is to educate for change - change that will lead to a more balanced society and culture.
