The Women’s Coalition on Equal Opportunities (WCEO), sponsored by Zonta Club of Kowloon and a research grant from Lingnan University, conducted a study on Hong Kong women’s experiences of violence in 2021. Prof CHAN Hau Nung Annie from the Department of Sociology and Social Policy of Lingnan University undertook the research. A similar study of a smaller scale was conducted by the WCEO in 2013. The present study aims to provide updated empirical data on the issue.

The target sample are women living in Hong Kong aged 15-64. The research consists of a questionnaire survey and in-depth interviews. A total of 1044 responses were received for the survey and 30 individuals were interviewed individually or in focus groups. Similar to the 2013 survey, the current survey sample is skewed towards younger, better educated women when compared to Hong Kong’s 15-64 female population.
