Based on representative data sampled in a telephone survey in Hong Kong, this study aims to explore the relationship between media and gender violence. In scope it covers Internet content, print media, and broadcasting media. The result confirms the public perception and belief that the Hong Kong media is filled with gender violence. Yet contrary to the public discourse that the Internet an unregulated public space is the terrain in which gender violence is more serious than elsewhere in the media, the data implies that gender violence in the print media in fact leads to greater public concern and outcry.

是 次研究旨在探討媒體與性別 暴力的關係,涵蓋的範疇 包括互聯網、印刷媒體和電子媒體。研 究採用隨機抽樣的電話訪問調查方法,研究結果跟社會主流論述相差不 遠:香港的媒體充斥著性別暴力。然而,研究發現大部份受訪者認為印刷媒體的性別暴力比其他媒體更嚴重,這結果跟普遍認為互聯網是最多性別暴力之社會空間的 觀點有所出入。
