#OrangeTheWorld - say NO to gender-based violence 2021
As we come to the end of the 16 days of action for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Alexandra Valkenburg, Head of the EU Delegation in Rome wanted to reiterate that gender-based violence is a violation of human rights and has no place in the European Union or anywhere else in the world.
Here, in Rome, we are also greatly concerned about the way gender-based violence affects food security and nutrition all over the world.
The exceptional Joint Programme on Gender Transformative Approaches for Food Security and Nutrition implemented by FAO, IFAD and WFP and funded by the European Union is one great example to face this challenge.
But ending gender-based violence requires the commitment of all.
These past 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence (25 November – 10 December) reminds us to:
- STOP violence against women and girls!
- ORANGE the World!
- Stand up for Human Rights!
