09 NOVEMBER 25 INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ENDING OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ( UN)

PAINT THE WORLD ORANGE

Let’s end violence against women NOW!

Almost 1 in 3 women have suffered abuse in their lifetime. In times of crisis, the numbers affected increase, as they were violated during the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent humanitarian crises, conflicts and climate disasters. A new UN Women report, based on data from 13 countries since the pandemic, shows that 2 out of 3 women suffered some form of violence or knew a woman who suffered it. Unfortunately, only 1 in 10 said they would turn to the police for help. In turn, it was concluded that these women are more likely to face situations of poverty and food shortages.

Although gender-based violence is widespread, it can and must be prevented. Stopping this violence begins with believing in survivors, taking comprehensive and inclusive approaches that address root causes, transform harmful social norms, and empower women and girls. With essential services in the police, judicial, health and social sectors, and with sufficient funding to fight for women’s rights, we can end gender-based violence.

In order to raise awareness about this relevant scourge, this year the UN promotes the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women with the slogan “Paint the world orange: Let’s put an end to violence against women NOW!”. And it is that for the United Nations, as every year, orange is the star color of our campaigns to represent a brighter future free of violence against women and girls. Be part of the orange movement!
