SI Glasgow City starts 16 days of activism by ‘Oranging’ the Hydro

Local Glasgow Councillor Eva Bolander joined Presidents Christine and Fiona along with club members at the SSE Hydro on Monday 25 November.

That day is the United Nation’s day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and starts 16 days of activism to raise awareness of the plight of women and girls locally and globally experiencing domestic abuse and sexual exploitation. Involvement with the UN campaign  ‘Orange the World’  raises awareness about the continued use of Violence Against Women and Girls both in Scotland and worldwide.

SI Glasgow City worked with the Glasgow City Council to ‘orange’ the SSE Hydro in recognition of this event.
