How far have we come in efforts to end violence against women?‏

March 5, 2015

 

Hello Luz Maria Utrera,

Happy #OrangeDay!

25th of every month is Orange Day - a day to take action to end violence against women and girls.

 

Impacting 1 in 3 women and girls in their lifetime, violence against women is a global pandemic. It is rooted in gender inequality, a problem that can be solved, if the progressive steps outlined in the Beijing Platform for Action adopted by Governments in 1995 are fully implemented. To reach gender equality, we need new and updated laws, national policies and strategies, investment in gender equality, and public mobilization. And, we must make ending violence against women and girls a top priority.

How far has your country come in promoting gender equality and ending violence against women and girls? Learn more>

Join us in raising awareness as Governments, the United Nations and civil society organizations come together to review the progress made in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action at its twentieth anniversary at the 59th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW59).
