The First Ever "She Dares to Change Human Library" Held Successfully !
Burdened with all sorts of prejudices, the situation of marginalized women became distorted and invisible. And issuse of poverity, discrimination, violence, and deprivation of right to civil participation still remain unsolved and even worsening.
To combat these prejudices, HER fund co-organised an event called “She Dares to Change Human Library” with City University of Hong Kong, Applied
Social Sciences. Eight women from our grantee’ organisations were invited to share their life stories with more than 60 “readers” directly. The event attracted diverse of media coverage. You may see more photos here.
Post-reading sharing by some “readers”:
“Glad to have chances to ask sexual minorities questions, a rare experience!”
“I learnt how to get along with different people and accept our differences.”
“Carers have their own perseverance, hope, and concern for the community.”
