Women, Gender, and Efforts for Equality: Comparative Asian-Western Perspectives

(Alternative unofficial title: Women on the Warpath)

In April 2014 Germaine Greer, author of The Female Eunuch and other pathbreaking books, spoke at the University of Hong Kong.  To mark the anniversary of this event, in April 2015 a seminar focusing on women will take place in the University of Hong Kong.

Anna Wu Hung-Yuk, unofficial member of Exco, founding chairman of the Hong Kong Equal Opportunities Commission, and a HKU alumna and University Fellow, has agreed to deliver a keynote address at this event.  A round-table session drawing in academics and others with a wide variety of international experience will discuss efforts to encourage gender equality in different settings around the world.

This event is also intended to highlight and celebrate the richness and diversity of past and present research on women and gender undertaken by academics and postgraduates (male and female) at the University of Hong Kong and other Hong Kong academic institutions.  All interested in taking part in this event are invited to submit proposals for papers or panels to Priscilla Roberts, Department of History, HKU, e-mail proberts@hku.hk.

Please copy all proposals to Ms. Zardas Lee, e-mail czardaslee@gmail.com.

Deadline for Submissions: February 20, 2015.
