The United Nations Building and UNESCAP on Rajadamnoen Nok, Thailand's oldest avenue in orange to raise awareness and encourage action to stop violence against women. Orange has been chosen as the colour as it is a bright and optimistic colour, representing a future free from violence against women and girls for the United Nations Secretary-General’s campaign “UNiTE to End Violence against Women”. #16Days #OrangeTheWorld
