This talk will begin with a brief description of my course of experiences in academia and non-government organizations over the past 25 years, through which I will reflect on some key moments in teaching, researching and advocating for gender equality in Hong Kong. These reflections prompt me to ask: What strategies have we been using to talk about gender equality, and how well have they worked? How can we continue to highlight and sustain the relevance of gender and sexuality related issues in higher education? I will use specific examples from my research on women in the Hong Kong Police, men who take "upskirt" photos of women, and my most recent experience working with HER Fund's Transformative Feminist Leadership programme to engage in an open discussion with the audience.
