Hi dearest readers ;)

Today is Orange Day.
Take action to Orange your day on Wednesday, October 25th 2017 !!!
This Orange Day, 25 Octoberr 2017, the UNiTE Campaign will put a spotlight on the issue of Violence against Women living in Rural Communities.

Violence affects all groups of women and girls, regardless of income, age, or education. Women and girls living in rural areas face different risks to violence and challenges in responding.

Yet, it is not living in rural areas as such that places women and girls at greater risk of violence but rather their underserved nature - including high levels of poverty, lower access to high education, decent work, economic empowerment, and social protection - that increase their risk of being subject to violence and difficulties to leave an abusive relationship.

One of the main issues to be highlighted around violence against rural women is that services for survivors are not easily accessible and available for women from rural areas: “Public services often fail to respond to the needs and challenges of rural women. In many parts of the world, women are constrained by physical distances, poor transport infrastructure, concerns for physical safety, and cultural norms that limit women’s mobility or discourage women from entering the public sphere. In situations of domestic violence, for example, a lack of available childcare or employment opportunities can exacerbate women’s lack of access to basic support services such as police protection, safe accommodation, health care, and legal assistance, which further compounds their psychosocial isolation.” 1

Among the 169 targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are three that specifically focus on eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls, eliminating harmful practices, and reducing all forms of violence. Realizing gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls will make a crucial contribution to progress across all the 17 Goals and targets. Any measure taken to achieve these targets and eliminate all forms of violence against ALL women and girls must include those living in rural communities.

What is Orange Day ?

The UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign, managed by UN Women, has proclaimed every 25th of the month as “Orange Day” – a day to take action to raise awareness and prevent violence against women and girls.
Initiated and led by the UNiTE campaign Global Youth Network, Orange Day calls upon activists, governments and UN partners to mobilize people and highlight issues relevant to preventing and ending violence against women and girls, not only once a year, on 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women), but every month.
