CHapter 1: Hong Kong

Hong Kong, as one of the most globalized metropolitan cities in Asia, has long been in the lead of economic development. Even with the recent popularity of the #MeToo campaign, Hong Kong still has a long way to go on the road of achieving gender equality, especially in areas such as workplaces and campuses. Along with Team FEMILY Hong Kong, we hope to make a change globally, starting with Hong Kong in Asia. 

Hilda Chau

Team member

Hilda Chau is an enthusiastic, passionate young leader at her final year studying at Lung Kong WFSL Lau Wong Fat Secondary School. Hilda enjoys travelling and exploring around the world, where she is excited to enroll at University of Manchester next year, which she would also be responsible in charge of Femily UK in the near future. Hilda was born and raised in Hong Kong, one of the most international, globalized city in Asia, shaping her towards a globalized individual while granting her the opportunity to explore around different essential values in her life: with an objective of bringing the community into a better place. In regards to that, Hilda has been passionately involved in community services through actions, such as volunteering at the nonprofit Smile with Us HK, where she explored the issue of inequality within our society. This fosters Hilda in seeking a pathway in enforcing bigger influence internationally, where she joined Team FEMILY international, with a mission of minimizing gender inequality and the stereotyped women’s gender role in Asia.

Germaine Leung

Team member 

Germaine has always had an unwavering belief on the notion of equality. She notices the acts of injustice and prejudice in everyday life, that are abhorrently still present in the 21st century, just that they are only made less noticeable. Feminism is important because it is not only about stopping discrimination against women, but being aware of the long-standing patriarchal system that results in toxic masculinity and double standards between genders. Feminism is about empowering all women to break their limits and break the glass ceiling. Feminism is about empowering all men to liberate themselves from the confines of toxic masculinity. By being involved in the FEMILY campaign, Germaine hopes to spread these ideals to more people to make the world a better place.

Joyce cHan

Team member 

Joyce Chan is currently studying at St. Mary's Canossian College in Hong Kong. From her experience of being the Assistant Director of the school drama production, she is well aware of that a pen is mightier than a sword. Her interest in socio-politcal issues in the world motivated her to engage in debate competitions, as well as writing for the school editorial board. In Hong Kong, gender rights are rarely addressed and most feel content with the status quo.
With her pen and quill, she joined FEMILY in hopes of connecting Hong Kong to the world and provoking discussions about gender equality. 

Mary Kwok

Team member 

Having to have grown up in Hong Kong, Mary feels blessed to have never had to worry about being treated differently just because she was a girl. She started to become more educated about gender inequality as she grew up and she learned that there were many countries in the world, developed and undeveloped, where women were denied education, freedom of choice and basic human rights. Although she has never personally experienced gender inequality, she believes feminism is an important cause, to raise awareness and encourage change, so that more girls and women can have better lives.
