Women wearing pyjamas rallied in city center for the 2013 Slutwalk. Hong Wrong has taken many photos.

Evan Fowler from the Housenews explained the significance of slutwalk in Hong Kong.

The recent comments of Security Chief Lai Tung Kwok, who suggested women should not “drink too much” in order to avoid being raped, and the pro-China Executive Councillor Cheng Yiu Tong who argued that Hong Kong candidates standing for election should be screened by China, as, in his words, “a porn star was elected to parliament in the West without a screening process. Is that what we want to see?”, are clear indications that Hong Kong needs SlutWalk.
