I wear ORANGE because...
The UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign has proclaimed 25th of every month as “Orange Day” – a day to take action to raise awareness and prevent violence against women and girls. Activists from around the world, governments and UN partners have organized Orange Day actions calling for safety from violence at homes, schools, work places and public spaces.

UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, artists from UN Women's "One Woman" theme song, other UN agency leaders and members of the Secretary-General's men leaders network, member of the UNiTE youth network and others joined in.

Now it's your turn: From 25 November to 10 December, we want your help to make these actions bigger, bolder, and global. We want to Orange the World in 16 Days.
