Ever since the 2000s, on the 25th of November people worldwide have raised public awareness for Elimination of Violence against Women, and of the unity of women standing up to END Violence.
Why we must eliminate violence against women?
Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today remains largely unreported due to the impunity, silence, stigma and shame surrounding it.
Speechless? So were we. It’s alarming how in this day and age we’re still faced with these issues. It remains to be a life-long threat to millions of girls and women worldwide. Today, forces must be joined to put an end to this monstrosity.
How can you take action?
This year, show your support by wearing the colour orange to symbolise your commitment to this cause. But what does the colour orange symbolise? Orange signifies a better future, without the struggle, without violence, but with peace for all girls and women.
End violence day and join the campaign with the United Nations!
