‘We all want to feel safe…’ The Orange The World campaign kicks off again this year with 16 days of activism against gender-based violence. Starting on 25 November - the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women - the campaign aims at increasing awareness and sharing knowledge on various forms of violence against women.

Female workers are exposed to particular risks such as violence and harassment, more than other workers. Our infographic on sexual harassment at work, web sections on women and safety and health at work and worker diversity are helpful resources to promote a gender-sensitive perspective in the workplace.

Join the Orange the World initiative on Safe Spaces run by EIGE, the European Institute for Gender Equality. Help us encourage actions to end the pandemic of violence against women and girls!
