BBC’s The Conversation

I recently had the honour of being one of the guests on an episode of BBC’s The Conversation.  The episode is called Women Reclaiming Their Streets, and I’ve taken a screenshot from their website:

It was wonderful to speak with a feminist activist in another part of the world and share thoughts and experiences.  We agreed that it’s empowering for women to stand up together and speak about their lives.  We also talked about how different forms of feminist activism are just different tools within our “feminist toolbox,” and that the more tools we have, the better.  This episode, as the title suggets, is also about women reclaiming their right to be in public places without having to fit social standards, such as being pleasant and smiley.  Instead, we should feel free to be angry about social injustice and voice our own thoughts and opinions.

In this episode, “Krupa Padhy meets two women who have tackled violence against women head-on, by organising eye-catching and sometimes controversial street protests.”  The other guest is Finn Mackay, “one of the UK’s most influential feminist activists. She founded the London Feminist Network in 2004, the same year that she revived the Reclaim the Night marches….”

My apologies for neglecting to post more on our website.  I’ve been posting most of our content on Facebook instead, and so I’ve now updated the website to include a preview of our Facebook posts on the side.  Below is a collage of some of the photos from our march in 2017, followed by the press coverage we received.  Thank you for your support!

Here is a message from Angie:

A big thank you to all past and present supporters, marchers, organisers and volunteers. We’ve been marching together since 2011, and it’s wonderful to see that more and more people around the world are talking about sexual harassment and sexual violence.  Let’s continue to raise awareness about the issues and fighting victim blaming!

新聞稿 2016

隸屬於國際蕩婦遊行運動(International SlutWalk Movement)的「香港蕩婦遊」(SlutWalk Hong Kong) 來到第五屆。香港獨立英文新聞網站《HKFP》曾報導,香港大學的性騷擾罪行並不罕見,卻鮮有傳 媒的關注與報導。直至今天,不論是香港或其他先進國家,性侵犯、性騷擾、強姦,甚至是社會對性 侵受害者的指責依舊存在,這亦是蕩婦遊行運動所針對的議題。

近日私營殘疾人士院舍「康橋之家」前負責人張建華性侵案,法庭因未能接納心理年齡只僅有 8 歳的 受害者的證詞,案件最終被撒回控訴。前負責人張建華更異常地於顯身於媒體前,稱受害人「誘惑他」, 並把罪責歸咎於智障受害人的妄想。是次性侵案令全港市民感到憤怒,針對社會福利署和政府總部的 遊行集會超過兩千人參與,抗議政府對私營安老院與殘疾人士院舍的監管失效,未能有效保障老年人 或精神殘疾人士,以致性暴力或其他虐待行徑持續地發生。

另外,早前一名酒吧老闆涉嫌迷姦一名女客戶,法醫發現女士體內及酒杯殘留鎮靜劑,內褲及陰道外 亦有老闆精液。然而,他最後卻只被判處 240 小時社會服務令。這是由於法官認為被告「有企業家頭 腦,不想判刑摧毀其事業」。這些案件都說明了香港仍然需要加強性侵犯、強姦與社會對性侵受害者 責的認知與關注,以避免日後相同案件出現。

1. 支持性侵受害者,停止向女性施暴!
2. 成立獨立調查委員會對康橋之家性侵案作出調查,委員會成員需包括受害者及其家人、智障人士
3. 護理院舍服務全面公營,停止私有化,大幅增加公共院舍服務,確保有保障的院舍條件,捍衛殘

SlutWalk Hong Kong will take place for the fifth time, as part of the international SlutWalk movement. The movement begun in Toronto, in 2011, when a police officer told students at York University to avoid dressing like “sluts” if they wanted to avoid being sexually assaulted. This movement, which is against sexual violence, victim blaming and rape culture, is still much needed, in Hong Kong and other locations. Earlier this year, HKFP noted that sexual harassment at universities in Hong Kong is not rare, just rarely reported.

Recently, a sexual assault case against the former leader of Bridge of Rehabilitation Co was dismissed as the courts would not accept the testimony of a victim with the mental age of eight. This former care home leader has since come out with outlandish, victim-blaming statements, calling the mentally disabled victim “crazy”, “delusional” and saying she “seduced him”. This case has outraged people all over Hong Kong. On October 20 and 23, over 1,500 people protested against the systemic failure of the private residential care homes for the elderly and mentally disabled, in which sexual and other abuse is widespread.

Also in recent news, the owner of a bar drugged and raped a customer, but the initial rape charge against him was dropped, and he was sentenced to just 240 hours of community service. The judge stated that the perpetrator had a good “business mind” and didn’t want to ruin his future prospects.

These cases illustrate the need for us to raise awareness concerning sexual assault, victim blaming and rape culture. Please join us this year for SlutWalk Hong Kong 2016.


1. Support victims – stop violence against women!
2. Independent investigation of “Bridge of Rehabilitation”, with representatives from patients’ families, patients themselves, parent organisations and social worker unions.
3. Increase public spending and end the privatisation and outsourcing of care homes – high quality care homes, safe from sexual and other abuse, should be a basic right.
