"Women, Politics, Livelihood" Sharing

Many of the women in our community appear detached from currents events such as Electoral Reform and Occupy Central either due to their being ill-informed or because of the thinking that politics does not concern them. To enhance women’s social involvement, on June 20, we invited Dr Luk Kit-ling, Chair, and Ms Tai Sau-wai, both of the Association for the Advancement of Feminism to the Jockey Club Lai Kok Centre to address the topic. Using the decision making process and chain of command at home, the speakers illustrated the dynamics of political process. As a closure, the speakers also explained the political under-current behind the movement of Occupy Central.

 

The 20 women present commented that the discussion format is very animated, and is a non-intimidating way to view the democratic political process and its impacts. They hoped to see more of these types of sharing to enlighten them of other social issues.
