This year, UN Women and partners around the world are marking the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (25 November – 10 December) under the theme of ‘Orange the World: Raise Money to End Violence against Women and Girls’. A host of public events will galvanize global attention and action to end the pandemic of violence against women. From marches in Uganda, Serbia and Timor-Leste, to a public rally on motorbikes in Pakistan, people will take to the streets to say no to violence, and iconic buildings will light up in orange.

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and the 16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, the European Union Office in Palestine and UN Women together with Palestinian counterparts lit up the Nativity Church in Bethlehem and Al Manara Square in Ramallah as a message of a better future without violence against women and girls.
