The Library of Birmingham is joining the United Nations’ campaign to bring an end to violence against women by lighting up in orange this evening.

As part of the Orange the World campaign, the Library of Birmingham will be lit up in bright orange on Friday 25 November.

The UNiTE campaign has proclaimed the 25th of each month as “Orange Day”, a day to raise awareness and take action to end violence against women and girls. As a bright and optimistic colour, orange represents a future free from violence against women and girls.

Orange Day calls upon activists, governments, and UN partners to mobilize people and highlight issues relevant to preventing and ending violence against women and girls, not only once a year on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, but every month.

On the 25th day of every month, UNiTE mobilizes people around the world to support the #OrangeDay initiative.

The campaign calls on people everywhere to wear the colour orange and take action to end violence against women and girls in communities, at home, in public spaces, in schools and workplaces, during conflict and in times of peace.
