'The collection aims to introduce students to the richness of gender studies that have emerged in Hong Kong in the past few decades, both as a system of knowledge and a form of practice. In particular it will show how gender studies have helped us re-examine the nature and meanings of colonial politics; reveal the pervasiveness of gender inequalities in social institutions and processes; illuminate the multiple forms of power and inequalities; and transgress rigid and man-made boundaries.' - excerpt from front flap
