IOM says NO to violence against women and girls
On 25 November, IOM Bangladesh celebrated the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and Girls, and demonstrated its support and solidarity to the global awareness campaign ‘Orange the World: End Violence against Women and Girls’ that started on this day.
During the campaign period – 25 November until 10 December – individuals and organizations will carry out a range of activities to raise awareness and mobilize to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls. On this first day of the campaign, IOM staff showed solidarity by wearing orange- coloured clothing, writing key messages to encourage action against gender-based violence, and engaged in hand printing using the colour orange to symbolize a future without violence. They also light up orange- coloured lanterns to ‘Orange the World’.
