WOMEN’S FOUN­DA­TION GALA DIN­NER

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

More than HK$4 mil­lion was raised by the Women’s Foun­da­tion’s an­nual gala din­ner to fund the char­ity’s work for dis­ad­van­taged women and girls. A high­light was the key­note speech by Madeline Di Nonno, CEO of the Geena Davis In­sti­tute on Gen­der in Me­dia. She shared find­ings from the in­sti­tute’s lat­est re­search, draw­ing at­ten­tion to two is­sues— the un­der­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of women in speak­ing or named roles in films, and the large num­ber of sex­u­alised fe­male char­ac­ters in films di­rected at chil­dren.
