The most famous examples are probably Shakespeare’s Benedick and Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing . Gender roles and expectations do change with the times. The Newsletter talks to Prof. Diana T.F. Lee, Chairperson of the Committee Against Sexual Harassment, who shares the results of the online survey conducted last year to point to future directions for further promoting gender equalities on campus. What does the number ‘180,000’ suggest? It is the population of the Mongol minority in Hebei, roughly the number of babies born worldwide in half a day, and the number of CUHK alumni (who automatically become members of the CUHK Convocation).
