Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review


This paper discusses current research related to gender equity in Hong Kong's educational system, at the classroom and administrative levels as well as in teacher education. Eastern and Western philosophies of sexual difference are presented in a historical perspective as a backdrop for current attitudes. Factors associated with gender imbalance are explored. Equal access to technology education and the effects of the recent influx of immigrant youth from the Chinese Mainland on gender equity in Hong Kong schools are also considered.
