在2012年,有不少事件提醒著我們,身為女人,要活得自由自在、有尊嚴有多困難:巴基斯坦女學生馬拉拉因爭取受教育的權利而遭槍擊;印度女大學生在巴士上遭輪姦,重傷去世,揭開了印度女性在日常生活中所面對的性暴力。在香港,年輕女生仇仇疑因中性打扮遭歧視而輕生;性小眾在香港原來如此邊緣,性傾向歧視條例拿出來諮詢的機會也遭否決;盛女節目令單身女士心情忐忑;女性對A&F裸男稍微表示渴慕就不斷被放大,被算為對男性持雙重標準,而每天每夜在各大媒體上出現的女體就只是過眼雲煙。

至於遠離家鄉的外藉家庭傭工,則面對不人道的居住環境,沒有選擇外宿的權利、中介公司斂財等不公義!

現時現刻,還有這樣多對外貌、身體、性自主、性取向的無謂規範,還有這樣多性暴力的威脅和歧視!然而,我們還是看見這些女性的勇氣,為自主生活堅持不懈!

在2013年的3月8日(國際婦女節) ,婦進發起此網上照片宣言行動,搜集「勇敢做自己」的女性故事,以照片或圖像展現我們的團結!只要這些女性故事符合以下的精神,即可參與!

「勇敢做自己」
女性超越規範選擇自主生活,過適合自己的生活模式。例如:結婚生仔、單身、多元關係、伴侶性別、外貌…等等。又或者爭取非主流、另類、邊緣小眾的權利。

「姊妹團結」
其實不論男女或其他性別,也同處在性別的麻煩和籠牢下,都是同在一條船上,都歡迎你願望大家能團結起來,攜手改變!

Numerous events in 2012 reminded us of how difficult it still is for women to live in freedom and with dignity. Pakistani school girl Malala was shot in the head because she demanded for girls’ rights to receive education; an Indian university student was raped, tortured and left to die on the streets; in Hong Kong, a student committed suicide, hinted at discrimination because of her androgynous appearance; sexual minorities in Hong Kong face enormous difficulties in even getting a public consultation on sex orientation discrimination legislation; the “Brides Wannbe” TV show stigmatizes single women as unwanted and inferior; local women’s keen reception to fashion store A&F’s marketing tactics drew condemnation which were completely out of proportion…

The 300,000 foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong are forced to live in atrocious environments, without the choice of “living out”; their blatant exploitation by employment agencies, tolerated by governments, continues to be a disgrace!

Today, there still exists in our world much unnecessary and outdated norms and regulations governing women’s appearances, bodies, sexual autonomy and sexual orientation, on top of the threats of sexual violence and discrimination! Nevertheless, we still witness the courage of women who insist on living life the way they see it.

For International Women’s day this year (8th March 2013), the Association for the Advancement of Feminism is hosting this event for us to upload pictures and declarations, to collect women’s inspirational stories as a manifestation of our solidarity. Please join us by sharing women’s stories that fit in with our two broad themes below:

“Dare to be me” – Women who live life as they see it, in spite of societal and cultural conventions and norms; e.g. marital and maternal life, diverse relationship forms, physical appearances, or the fight for the rights of sexual and gender minorities.

“Sisters unite” – We all live under the cage of “gender trouble” and thus are all in the same boat. We welcome you to join hands with us, make change for a better world!

“Participation details”

Via Facebook: please upload your “Dare to be me” and/or “Sisters unite” pictures and stories (e.g. a short description), to this facebook even page between 4th March and 31st March 2013 (www.facebook.com/events/158545267636659/)
