UN Women is pleased to invite you to the upcoming official commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The webinar will take place virtually on Wednesday, 24 November 2021 from 14:00 – 15:30, kicking off the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence.
The 2021 UNiTE campaign under its theme “Orange the World: END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN NOW!” will highlight the universal nature of violence against women and girls and acknowledge the particular challenges related to COVID-19, humanitarian and conflict situations. It will also amplify successes to demonstrate that violence against women and girls is preventable and mobilize greater investment in the proven solutions.
The event will involve the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the Executive Director of UN Women, the Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women, its Causes and Consequences, Leaders of the Action Coalition on Gender-based Violence, civil society and women’s rights organizations, including UN Trust Fund grantees and more champions from across the world.
