我唔係剩女 : 不婚中女的日常生活 = De-centering love and marriage: Lives of single women

Activity: Seminar / Talk / Other Presentation

Description

由一百多年前女性解放到現在,女性要「幸福」彷彿仍然只有結婚一途,「單身」的女性依舊被認為是可憐和有缺陷的。你是一個單身中女嗎?你是單身中女的親友嗎?單身中女的生活究竟是怎樣的?她們又如何看自己?

在這個講座中,陳效能教授會跟大家分享她有關一班香港單身女性對生活的看法的研究和發現,與大家探討女性在這個年代所面對的性別定型、家庭壓力,及她們對自己生命的自主想像。

While gender equality might seem to be a fact in our society, the definition of what makes a “normal” and “happy” woman is far from progressive. Marriage continues to be used as the ultimate measure of a woman’s worth, and singlehood is still stigmatized. Are you a single woman who's past the median age of first marriage? Do you know someone who is? What is life like for such women in Hong Kong?

Prof. Annie Chan will share with you insights and findings from her study on single women in Hong Kong, and to explore what it means to be a single woman in this time and age.
