She first ran for the Urban Council in the 1956 election as a candidate of Brook Bernacchi's Reform Club of Hong Kong, in which she received 4,122 votes, becoming the first woman to be elected to the council. In 1969, Bell decided not to seek for re-election in protest of the lack of executive power of the Urban Council. Her son Joseph Fok is a Permanent Judge of the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal.
