The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women was established in 1999 by the General Assembly of the United Nations, with Resolution 54/134 of 17 December, and is held every year on 25 November.
The day is also known as Orange Day because the colour orange is recognised across the world as that chosen by The United Nations Gender Equality Body, UN Women, to symbolise a future without violence against women.
To mark the day, UN Women promotes the #OrangetheWorld awareness campaign.
At CLB, we join our voices together with millions of people around the world to end violence against women in any form. We are advocates of a future without violence against women.
