You may have noticed a lot of orange online today.
The UN Secretary General’s UNiTE to End Violence Against Women campaign kicked its “Orange Your Neighborhood” initiative into high gear. The hashtag “orangeurhood” was trending for part of the day today. And the UN Women Twitter handle was filled with photos from around the world of people surrounded by the color in a sign of unity.
Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and marks the beginning of 16 days of activism , heading straight to Human Rights Day.
