The Consulate General of the Czech Republic joined the „Orange the World: End violence against women now!“ campaign

November 25th is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Each year an international campaign organized by UN Women (UN) called „Orange the World – 16 Days of Activism against violence against women and girls“ commences on this day and takes place until December 10th, which is the Human Rights Day. The color orange symbolizes a brighter future, free of violence.

The “Orange the World” campaign is calling for global action to increase awareness, galvanize advocacy and create opportunities for discussion about challenges and solutions. This year’s theme reminds us that it’s necessary to:

  • Advocate for inclusive, comprehensive and long-term strategies, programmes and resources to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls in public and private spaces
  • Amplify the success stories demonstrating that violence against women and girls is preventable by showcasing effective strategies and interventions to inspire all actors to scale up what works
  • Promote the leadership of women and girls in their diversity and their meaningful participation in policy making and decision making from global to local levels.
