Established in 1993, the Hong Kong Federation of Women is a non-profit dedicated to bringing Hong Kong women together, protecting their rights, encouraging their interest and participation in local issues, and collaborating with similar organisations worldwide.
It has more than 2,000 individual members and more than 100,000 corporate members. The organisation runs over 100 events and service projects a year, from celebrations and exhibitions to seminars and training programmes, including pioneering projects such as the Hong Kong Women of Excellence in the Six Arts Award and Hong Kong’s first all-women orchestra.
Its six-month Young Women Actualization Programme attracted a record number of participants this year.
In addition to organising programming, the federation also advocates for women by submitting position papers and subsidises local women’s associations’ community service. In Mainland China, the federation has set up 24 vocational schools and four clinics and donated water wells and vehicles to cater to the needs of women living in remote areas.
