UNiTE CAMPAIGN ORANGE DAY
25TH DAY OF EVERY MONTH
Launched in 2008, the United Nations Secretary-General's UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign aims to raise public awareness and increase political will and resources for preventing and ending all forms of violence against women and girls in all parts of the world.
In July 2012 the campaign proclaimed every 25th of the month as "Orange Day" - a day to take action to raise awareness and prevent violence against women and girls. Initiated and led by the UNiTE campaign Global Youth Network, Orange Day calls upon activists, governments and UN partners to mobilise people and highlight issues relevant to preventing and ending violence against women and girls, not only once a year, on 25th November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) but every month.
