Today the World will turn Orange!

Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women! It is also the worldwide start of the Orange the World! A campaign organized by UN Women to raise awareness against violence against women, that will last for 16 days. During these days you’ll be able to see many buildings, monuments and streets turn orange, worldwide! There will also be many events organized to spread awareness.

It’s important to raise awareness against violence against women, so that hopefully the problem can eventually be eliminated. 1 in every 3 women becomes a victim of violence, which is an insane huge amount! 

Tonight I will be in Utrecht as the national ambassador for the official launch of the ‘Orange the World Campaign’.

I hope that by sharing my story I will empower and inspire other women to stand up for themselves. I want to take away those feelings of shame, guilt and fear that many women have to deal with after such horrific experiences. 

You are NOT alone! Together we stand strong! Together we rise! You got This!
