16 days of social media activism for #OrangeTheWorld 2017: raising awareness for the UN Women’s Campaign to #LeaveNoOneBehind.
~ November 25th, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women & Girls, until December 10th, Universal Human Rights Day ~
As a human being, a girl, a woman, and a survivor, I thank the United Nations Women for the opportunity to come together and energize our online space with a global focus on this Intention in Action.
I see activism as an opportunity not only to express, and put our knowledge out there, but also to learn, and take in new information. Each day of the campaign, I tried to share a reflection that relates directly or indirectly to my experience as a survivor of sexual violence.
Ultimately, although this is a celebration for the elimination of violence against women and girls, whether we identify as a girl or a boy, a woman or a man – ending violence against one benefits the wellbeing of all.
May we stay active!
Day 1 (Happy International Day for the Elimination of VAWG!)
Day 16 (Happy Human Rights Day!)
