UN Orange the World – 16 days of Activism 25th November to 10th December 2018

For the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25th November and the 16 days of Activism leading to Human Rights Day on 10th December 2018 Glamorgan Soroptimists instigated #OrangeCardiff.

We dressed 16 statues in and around Cardiff in bright orange sashes fastened with a badge featuring the Soroptimist International Great Britain & Ireland logo and the words “Soroptimists say NO to violence against women”, after obtaining consent from Cardiff Council and the other Statue owners.

We joined with Cardiff Women’s Aid and also Cardiff & the Vale White Ribbon Campaign to promote the initiative and on their behalf draped one additional statue “Miner” located in Cardiff’s Queens Street.
