Abstract: This article attempts to articulate and re-validate the unique social contributions of marginalized and working women to their communities and to society-at-large, contributions which tend to be obscured if not forgotten, given the global dynamics of exclusion as they are at work in the capitalist society of Hong Kong. It looks at how a group of disenfranchised women workers renegotiate their identity, reclaim their dignity and regenerate social power through a community arts project 'Quilting the Power and Identity'; that is, how through these creative but powerful actions, their transformation from a transient state of imposed victimhood into active agency could be made possible.
