Flower Boats and Working Girls – A Social History of the Sex Trade in Hong Kong

Talk by Jason Wordie on April 29th 2010 at 6.15pm at the Helena May

Dear Members,

The Hong Kong Association of Business and Professional Women (HKABPW) and Action for Reach Out (AFRO) have organized a talk by well-known local historian, Jason Wordie. As the subject is fascinating (a social history of the sex trade in Hong Kong) and Jason is an excellent speaker, I asked permission from HKAPBW-AFRO to bring it to the attention of our members. The venue is The Helena May, 35 Garden Road on 29-04-10 at 6.15pm. Cost is $280 per person and all funds raised will be donated to AFRO to support their work with commercial sex workers in Hong Kong.

Payment: Please make your cheque payable to “HKABPW” and send to GPO Box 1526, Central, Hong Kong (and notify by email) or deposit directly to HSBC 567-622717-001 and email your deposit slip to: info@hkabpw.org

Looking forward to seeing you there!
