Activities implemented to fight gender-based violence (in english)

– Orange Day Campaign / UNiTE to End Violence against Women – Orange Day calls upon civil society, governments, and UN partners to mobilize people and highlight issues relevant to preventing and ending violence against women and girls. The French National Committee for UN Women implements the Orange Day Campaign every year to raise awareness on the topic as well as mobilize civil society to fight for the elimination of violence against women and girls. The Committee organises the ‘Orange Day Champion’ initiative: throughout France and throughout the year, institutions and companies take concrete actions to end violence against women in all spheres of society. The French National Committee for UN Women promotes these initiatives by awarding the title of ‘Orange Day Champion’ to cities, companies and universities or schools involved.
