Under the umbrella of UN Women’s Generation Equality Campaign that marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, for the next two years the focus of the UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women Campaign will be on rape as a specific form of harm.
The campaign will mark the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence from 25 November to 10 December under the theme: Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape! UN Women are inviting civil society to join them in galvanizing actions around the world to take a stand against sexual violence in all contexts and to spark a global conversation about what it will take to prevent and end rape.

If you are planning Orange Campaign activities in your community, UN Women advise that their advocacy tool kit for 2019 will only be available one week before November 25. While we realize that this is too late for most, we hope you will be able to adapt the current resources on the GRAN website to this year’s theme.
