Report on the Outcome Study of 'Sexual Violence -

Prevention and Empowerment Project for Girls & Boys'

In Hong Kong, the issue of sexual violence has drawn the attention of government officials, school administrators, and social service providers. Statistics show that the trend of sexual violence cases is rising. The number of newly reported sexual violence cases in 2012 and 2013 was 238 and 681 respectively, but the number of newly reported sexual violence cases in 2016 was 861. This shows a gradual increase in the number of sexual violence cases in Hong Kong.

To counter the increasing sexual violence cases, the Association Concerning Sexual Violence Against Women (ACSVAW) has launched a prevention and empowerment project for students studying in secondary school on the issue of sexual violence. This project involves a 4-session workshop which aims at empowering the student participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent sexual violence. The present study which was commissioned by the ACSVAW has evaluated the outcome of the project delivered by the ACSVAW in secondary schools. Since the evaluation project focused on the outcome, a set of pre-workshop questionnaires and post-workshop questionnaires was designed to measure the changes within the students. Eighty-three pre-workshop questionnaires and 55 post-workshop questionnaires were collected. In addition, four focus group sessions were conducted to collect the views of the workshop participants on the effectiveness and improvement of the workshop.


近年香港的性暴力問題漸漸受政府官員,學校行政人員和社會服務提供者關注,根據政府的統計資料,,2012年和2013年新增的性暴力案件分別為238宗和681宗,但2016年新增的性暴力個案卻上升至861宗,數字反映本港性暴力的個案數目有上升趨勢。

有見及此,關注婦女性暴力協會(下稱「協會」)推出了一個為期四節,每節一個小時的預防性暴力及充權工作坊,藉此提昇中學生的反性暴力知識和技能。 本研究評估受協會委託進行,就協會在中學推行的反性暴力教育工作坊進行成效評估。評估設計採用了前測問卷調查和後測問卷,以比較學生參與工作坊前後的變化。是次評估收集了83份前測調查問卷和55份後測問卷。 除問卷外,研究人員亦進行了四次焦點小組會議,以收集參與學生對工作坊成效和改善的意見。
