About The Event

The revolution to address all forms of violence against women (VAW) is coming to Hong Kong! Renowned playwright Eve Ensler and international artist/singer Monique Wilson are coming to Hong Kong to join more than a thousand women (and men) to call for an end to all forms of VAW. One Billion Rising or OBR is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. In the past two years in Hong Kong, Asian women migrant workers and supporters highlighted the issue of Erwiana Sulistyaningsih to call for justice and an end to violence against women domestic workers in Hong Kong. This year, migrant workers and local women will join together to advance various issues showing the continued exploitation, oppression and violence women from different walks of life experience in Hong Kong. These include poverty, unemployment, discrimination, social exclusion and modern-day slavery.
