Hi dearest readers ;)
Today is Orange Day.
Take action to Orange your day on Tuesday, July 25th 2017 !!!
This Orange Day, 25 July 2017, the UNiTE Campaign focuses on Cyber Violence against Girls.
Girls and boys, including adolescents, are increasingly spending more time online and start using the Internet at younger ages than ever before 1. Although girls’ and boys’ access to information and communication technologies (ICTs) remains dominant in high-income countries, the rapid expansion of affordable, accessible Internet through mobile technologies in low- and middle-income countries is bringing more children to the Internet worldwide.
ICTs bring tremendous benefits to children, providing access to information, education, entertainment and social networks that broaden their horizons and stimulate their creativity. However, at the same time they can reinforce inequities among children and lead to harmful consequences and risks to their safety, personal development and well-being.
Although children have long been exposed to violence and exploitation, ICTs have changed the scale, form, impact and opportunity for the abuse of children everywhere. While both girls and boys are vulnerable to the different risks and harms related to the misuse of ICTs, girls have been disproportionately victimized in sexual abuse and exploitation through the production and distribution of child sexual abuse materials. In 2013, 81 per cent of child sexual abuse materials depicted girls. 2.
Girls are also particularly vulnerable to being groomed online for sexual encounters and sometimes exploited through live streaming of their sexual abuse. Many children are experiencing widespread victimization through online bullying, harassment, and intimidation, where girls are particularly targeted due to gender norms and power dynamics. Gender discrimination, lack of confidence, difficulty with language, poverty, and cultural factors can adversely affect girls and lead to their heightened vulnerability to these crimes and victimization.
SDG 5 on Gender Equality places women’s access to technological empowerment as one of the core indicators for progress. To achieve this goal, we must make sure that the internet will be a safe and more secure place that allows all women and girls to fulfil their potential as valued members of society and live a life free from violence.

What is Orange Day ?The UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign, managed by UN Women, has proclaimed every 25th of the month as “Orange Day” – a day to take action to raise awareness and prevent violence against women and girls.
Initiated and led by the UNiTE campaign Global Youth Network, Orange Day calls upon activists, governments and UN partners to mobilize people and highlight issues relevant to preventing and ending violence against women and girls, not only once a year, on 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women), but every month.
