COLLEGE GOES ORANGE AND SAYS ‘NO’ TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

19th November 2019

City of Wolverhampton College will be ‘going orange’ on Monday 25 November as part of an international campaign to end violence against women and girls. 

The college is participating in Orange Wolverhampton, a local awareness-raising campaign supporting the United Nations’ international 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, which runs from Monday, November 25 until Tuesday, December 10. 

College staff and students will be encouraged to wear orange clothing and students will be making and giving away orange bows to raise awareness of the campaign.   

In addition, posters giving details of organisations supporting women affected by violence will be on prominent display and all college computers will display the Orange Wolverhampton campaign message throughout the 16-day period. 

The Orange Wolverhampton campaign promotes the message that the city stands against violence against women and girls – including domestic, sexual or honour-based violence, female genital mutilation and forced marriage – and that organisations work closely together to reduce prevalence of these forms of violence and support those affected.  

The United Nations’ campaign began in 1991 and is used as an organising strategy by individuals and organisations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
