Supporting HERFund for the premiere of movie ‘A Woman is a woman’ to raise awareness of the transgender community in Hong Kong

On 2nd November 2018, our charitable partner HERFund, hosted a charity screening of ‘A Woman is a Woman’ – a ground breaking movie following the journey of two transgender women in their struggle for social recognition. The film, based on true stories, aims to raise public awareness of the challenges faced by the transgender community.

HERFund is a women’s rights organisation who envision equality in the hopes of achieving a society that will secure and promote rights for all, without discrimination on any grounds. We are proud to be a sponsor of this event, whose cause is in line with our advocacies, and believe it will work towards our aim of being recognised by the community, as a firm who is committed to diversity in all its forms.

“The film was very powerful in its portrayal of the challenges faced by transgender women in society in Hong Kong and the event itself was an uplifting show of support for the talented females involved in the production, direction and interpretation of this story. I really enjoyed the evening.”
