Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence (GBV) is an international campaign that has taken place each year since 1991. Starting on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and ending on 10 December, Human Rights Day, indicating that violence against women is the most pervasive breach of human rights worldwide.  

This event by FAO, IFAD, UNITE and WFP will open the 16 Days of Activism by looking at how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected gender inequalities at a domestic level - increasing not only physical violence against women and girls, but also sexual, economic and psychological violence.
