Orange Day is Monday, July 25

Monday, July 25 is designated as Orange Day by Presbyterian Women to show awareness of exploitation of females worldwide and to support people who are working to end it.

Various NGOs have addressed sexual violence in conflicts: Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, FIDH, TRIAL International, CIVITAS MAXIMUS, REDRESS and others. They work to sensitize the international community and civil society on this subject and also to care for the victims and prosecute the aggressors. However, there is no unifying pole of expertise and actions entirely devoted to war rape. WWoW is attempting to fill this gap

Wear orange or an orange ribbon to show support for these efforts, especially in light of news from Ukraine.
