Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Shanghai commemorates the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

November 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. On this day UN Women starts its annual campaign „Orange the World“. Employees of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Shanghai donned orange scarves in support of the campaign.

According to the latest global surveys published by the WHO (more in the document below), almost 1 in 3 women over the age of 15 have been exposed to physical or sexual violence whether by an intimate partner or another person. The surveys lead to a bleak conclusion that the worldwide situation has not changed much in the last 10 years. Furthermore, the results do not yet reflect the reality associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year’s global campaign theme “Orange the World: END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN NOW!“ mobilizes everyone to

  • Advocate for inclusive, comprehensive and long-term strategies, programmes and resources to prevent and eliminate VAWG in public and private spaces prioritizing the most marginalized women and girls.
  • Amplify the success stories demonstrating that VAWG 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 policymaking and decision making from global to local levels. 8
  • Engage Generation Equality Forum commitment makers in your country or region to collaborate in the implementation of bold new commitments and to inspire further action to deliver progress on the Gender-Based Violence Action Coalition Blueprint
