Orange is the cue to show you care
tion of Violence against Women on Wednesday, the UN has embarked on a global initiative, Orange the World: End Violence against Women and Girls.
UN women under- secre- tary general and executive director Phumzile MlamboNgcuka said orange had been chosen to symbolise a future without violence against women and children.
“During the 16 days of activism, events are being organised in all parts of the world, and landmarks in towns and cities will be lit up in orange to draw global attention to the issue and stimulate action,” she said.
The Ministry of Women has also geared itself up for the campaign.
Plans include lighting up Table Mountain in orange and white.
The mountain will be lit up for two hours on Wednesday and on December 10 – from 8pm to 10pm.
