    Abstract

    Much attention has been paid in the last decade to the social capital of women, immigrants, and ethnic minorities (Portney & Berry, 1997; Seron & Fressi, 1995; Stanton,Salazar, 1997; Zhou & Bankston, 1994). However, there is very little research on the social capital of immigrants from mainland China in Hong Kong, in particular on that of female immigrants who came under the “family re-union policy”. After reunification with the mainland in 1997, the Hong Kong government officially addressed these female immigrants as "new arrival women" (NAWs) instead of as new immigrants. This study explores the kinds of social capital NAWs possess and the accessibility of various types of social capital for these women.
