Celebrate Orange Day
I've always, always believed that women have rights and asserting those rights, contarry to popular African chauvinists point of view, is not a crime. Sadly, many don't belive that. Women have treated like property, some property not to be valued.
So it's no wonder that I am more than a bit excited about UNiTe to End Violence Against Women's Orange Day.
Those are the days where young people around the world want to claim 25th of every month, starting with 25 July and leading up to 25 November, which is observed as the International Day to End Violence against Women, as an Orange Day, a day for taking action. They are asking everyone – men, women, boys and girls, young and old – to wear something orange on 25 July. It can be a t-shirt, a scarf, a tie, a dress, or any other attire that you wear! As more of us start wearing the color orange on 25th of every month, we will generate interest and spark conversations about the issue. Ultimately, we want people to start thinking and talking about how to end violence against women and girls.
On the same day, the UNiTE campaign will also launch a new UNiTE Ribbon as symbol for preventing and ending violence against women and girls. With your help, we can make this symbol universal. Download the image and post it on your Facebook and Twitter accounts to spread the word. Encourage your friends and family to promote it too!
This is a great way to show as support at women and individuals to those whose lives have been affected by violence and ensure them that they are not alone.
So please, DOWNLOAD!!! And don't forget to celebrate Orange Day
