UN - Unite to end violence against Women

Posted by International Inner Wheel | Nov 23, 2020 |

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicks off on November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ends on December 10th, International Human Rights Day.

The 2020 theme "Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!"

Since 1991 events are being organized worldwide to raise awareness of the fact that women and girls are still subject to many forms of violence and that urgently this must absolutely come to an end.

To show sympathy and solidarity please wear something orange during these days and think about what you or your club can do to end violence against women and girls.
