Co-authored by Prof Annie Hau-nung Chan, Director of BSocSc (Hons) Programme and Associate Professor of Sociology and Social Policy of Lingnan University and Dr Lawrence KK Ho, Assistant Professor of Social Sciences at the Hong Kong Institute of Education, Sixty Years of Hong Kong Policewomen was launched at this year’s Hong Kong Book Fair.

This is the first book in Hong Kong to give a detailed account on the history of policewomen, covering the story of policewomen in the 1950s, their wages, the reform of their uniform and the changes in their functions.  It also reflects the gradual elimination of sexual inequality as social development progressed.
