TDH International, under the name WADEintoACTIVISM, is joining the UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign organized by the UN. The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence will take place from November 25th to December 10th under the theme, “Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape”. The UN Women campaign invites us in galvanizing actions around the world to take a stand against sexual violence in all contexts and spark a global conversation about what it will take to prevent and end rape.
WADEintoACTIVISM will organize a Virtual Event Series on our new Facebook page, which will be produced as follows:
Performances: each day of the campaign we will present a creative work by a woman artist reflecting on the theme of violence against women. The multi-generational, multicultural group of women will share their voices on the topic from North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
Conversations with male artists and feminist activists from around the globe (US, Argentina, Italy, Canada, India, Ghana and the Caribbean) in regards to gender equality and the disparate interpretations of “manhood”.
“I Stand Against Rape”: wear orange and send us a photo of yourself with a sign in your own language to post on our page with #16Days of Activism #GenerationEquality #OrangeTheWorld
Please stay tuned for the full schedule of events.
