Tung Chee-hwa is expected to be criticised at the United Nations in New York at the end of the month for being too slow in appointing women to senior posts. A report compiled by the Hong Kong Federation of Women to be presented to the UN urges the Chief Executive to adopt affirmative action for women. The 50-page report says the SAR Government had only between 16 and 22 per cent of women as judges, Exco members, on advisory bodies or in top civil service posts last year. Head of social studies at City University, Dr Agnes Cheung Koon-chui, a co-writer of the report, said women faced systematic discrimination. 'Segregation of male and female roles is very obvious. If the Government does not appoint more women into public advisory bodies, it is clear they aren't paying attention to women's opinions.' Women were also seriously under-represented - at between five per cent and 33 per cent - in seven political parties, the report said. The Hong Kong Progressive Alliance had only two women in its 37-member party central committee.
