Orange the World: 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence – End Violence

Geschreven op 29-11-2015 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Agenda, Mensenrechten Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Orange the World

The year 2015 marks the 20-year anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most progressive road map to gender equality.

World leaders met in March at the United Nations 59th Commission on the Status of Women and in September at the 70th General Assembly to take stock of the progress made and commit to take action to close the gaps that are holding women and girls back.

A new Sustainable Development agenda, which for the first time includes specific targets and indicators on ending violence against women, also replaced the Millennium Development Goals. See The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: The Sustainable Development Goals – The SDG’s

November 25th is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Why This International Day? Violence against women is a human rights violation. Violence against women is a consequence of discrimination against women, in law and also in practice, and of persisting inequalities between men and women. Violence against women impacts on, and impedes, progress in many areas, including poverty eradication, combating HIV/AIDS, and peace and security. Violence against women and girls is not inevitable. Prevention is possible and essential. Violence against women continues to be a global pandemic.

From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

This year, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Campaign UNiTE to End Violence against Women invites you to Orange the world: End violence against women and girls (PDF). Join the UNiTE campaign and organize “Orange Events” between 25 November and 10 December 2015.
