16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence start on November 25th ( UN Day for Elimination of Violence against Women) until December 10th ( Human Rights Day) indicating that violence against women is the most pervasive breach of human rights worldwide.

The Grange Soroptimists did their own take on Orange the world!
