Slut Walk Hong Kong將會在11月24日(星期日)舉行香港第三屆的蕩婦遊行。「蕩婦遊行」源自於加拿大警官在2011年一個大學安全演講時表示「女性要避免性侵,就不應穿的像蕩婦般暴露」,引發全國民眾不滿,第一次「蕩婦遊行」就在多倫多舉行。至今,全球多個國家與地區都相繼舉行「蕩婦遊行」,女性以抗爭行動說出:「我的穿著,並不是受到性侵犯的理由!」

保安局局長黎棟國在2013年5月談及強姦案數字上升時,公開建議年輕女性不要喝太多酒。言下之意,即是說「女性被強姦是其咎由自取,並不是強姦犯的錯」,是公開歧視女性的言論。由於社會和經濟權力由男性主導,對女性的歧視變成責備受害者的父權意識形態。在警隊中,責備受害者的取態十分普遍,對性暴力受害者造成極大傷害。

在香港,曾遭性暴力對待的女性中,九成人因感到羞恥而未有報警。今年年初的調查發現,逾四分一受訪婦女曾遭受家庭暴力,當中約兩成涉及親密關係或婚內強姦,而在香港並沒有「婚內強姦」的法例。

在今天的新自由主義政策下,歐洲亞洲的公共托兒和護老服務開支被削減,女性家庭負擔加重,首當其衝成受害者。而美容產業為了從女性榨取龐大利潤,不斷扭曲社會對女性的價值觀。去年印度發生可怕的巴士輪姦案,可見對女性的壓迫在全球愈趨嚴重。

女性運動必須連繫至反資本主義的鬥爭,才能成功。

The third SlutWalk Hong Kong will be on 24 Nov, 2013. The movement started in 2011 when a police officer in Toronto spoke at a campus safety event at York University and told students not to ‘dress like sluts’ if they didn’t want to be sexually assaulted. After an initial protest, SlutWalks were started in various locations around the world, showing that the blaming of victims of sexual assault is a global problem.

Secretary Lai’s statement warning ‘young women’ to avoid ‘drinking too much’ in order to not be sexually assaulted illustrated how widespread patriarchal, victim-blaming views were within various government institutions.

In Hong Kong, 90% of victims do not report their assaults due to feelings of shame. In a recent survey, more than 25% of women in the territory indicated they had experienced domestic abuse, 20% of which had been raped. Hong Kong does NOT have legislation against marital rape.

In today neo-liberal environment, social services are being cut, with the burden for caring being further forced upon women. Meanwhile, the beauty industry continues to exploit women and distort social perceptions of femininity. Last year, the bus gang rape in India horrified the world, which saw the oppression of women getting worse.

The women’s movement must fight not only gender oppression but multiple forms of inequality, such as racial and social inequality, in order to succeed.
