History

‘At night we heard women prisoners wailing’: exhibition explores Hong Kong history from a female perspective

  • ‘Gender & Space’ tells stories about Hong Kong’s first century as a British colony through the eyes and experiences of various women
  • The subjects of the show at Tai Kwun have been chosen because they relate to the heritage site’s former occupants – law courts, a police station and prison
