Brief Description

From 2015-2018, the Philippine Commission on Women introduced the ORANGE YOUR ICON for 18 Days Campaign to end Violence against Women (25 Nov to 12 Dec), in solidarity with the United Nations’ UNiTE to End VAW Campaign. Said activity aimed to strengthen the anti-VAW advocacy by enjoining new audiences to join the cause to end VAW. The idea is to attract the public’s curiosity why major landmarks or icons nationwide are colored orange, thereby providing opportunities for advocates to explain the Anti-VAW advocacy
