Sexual violence is happening here in Hong Kong: 1 out of 7 women will experience sexual violence in her lifetime, but 9 out of 10 will say nothing.
TWF is proud to launch a major campaign to raise awareness around the prevalence of sexual violence in Hong Kong, aligned with Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Coined #MakePeopleCount, this campaign aims to break the taboo, boost preventative measures, encourage people to see victims as real people who need support, and significantly improve the support available to victims - from Government, employers, and individuals.
To enhance the protection and support available to victims, TWF has created a website with resources, including legal and mental health contacts as well as information for companies and individuals around preventive measures and interventions.
Join us in addressing this under-discussed and critical issue:
- Social Media:
- Share our video: English and Chinese

It’s time for our community to come together to address this issue that has been ignored for too long and ensure the safety, dignity and human rights of all residents – particularly women and girls – are fully respected.
Let’s show victims that they matter and #MakePeopleCount.
