16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (25 November to 10 December)
The 16 Days of Activism aim to raise public awareness and mobilise people to bring about change. It is used as an organising strategy by individuals and organisations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls. It was originated by the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991.

In support of this civil society initiative, each year, the UN Secretary-General’s campaign ‘UNiTE to End Violence against Women’ calls for global action to increase worldwide awareness and create opportunities for discussion about challenges and solutions. In 2014, the UNiTE campaign called on governments, UN entities, civil society organizations and individuals across the world to ‘orange their neighbourhoods’ to raise public awareness about the issue of violence against women and girls. Orange is one of the official colours of the UNiTE campaign, symbolizing a brighter future and a world free from violence against women and girls, orange has become synonymous with events during the 16 Days of Activism. http://www.unwomen.org/en
