UN Women Asia and the Pacific Newsletter | 16 Days of Activism 2019 Special Edition
This year, UN Women and partners around the world commemorated the 16 Days of Activism against Gender- Based Violence (25 November – 10 December) under the theme of “Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape”. A survivor-centered approach was underlined more than ever, to engage with survivors of violence with respect, where their consent, safe and confidentiality are upheld. Events and activities focused on storytelling, be it live listening events or through videos, podcasts, exhibitions and performances. As in previous years, iconic buildings and monuments were also ‘oranged’ to call for a violence-free future.
