“It is incredibly important that victims and survivors know there are safe spaces and lifelines within their own communities,” says Dame Vera Baird*, as she welcomes the launch of the codeword scheme. Ask For ANI campaign website. From 14 January victims of domestic abuse will be able to access much-needed support from thousands of pharmacies across the UK, backed by the Government. The Ask for ANI scheme allows those at risk or suffering from abuse to discreetly signal that they need help and access to support. By asking for ANI, a trained pharmacy worker will offer a private space where they can understand if the victim needs to speak to the police or would like help to access support services such as national or local domestic abuse helplines. As an essential retailer based on high streets across the country, and with specifically trained staff, pharmacies can provide a safe space for victims to sound an alarm if they are isolated at home with their abuser and unable to get help in another way.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected. It has been translated into 500 languages and is the most translated document in the world. Women’s rights are Human rights – a mantra that became central to global feminism post the 4th World Women’s Conference in Beijing. With the creation of UNWomen, a single UN body was tasked with accelerating progress in achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment #Orangetheworld, at #Generationequality

As more women find space atthe work place, and make positive progress towards leadership roles, they are faced with challenges. Women are targeted for their gender and for progressive roles they have adopted. Female employees suffer harassment.

Soroptimists will not tolerate sexual exploitation. We Believe to Achieve no tolerance to such violations of human dignity. Sexual exploitations is exploitation of a woman /girl and her body, and child sexual exploitation that leads to child prostitution. Such activity engrains stereotypes and often leads to harmful discrimination. Raise your voice against such exploitation. #Orangetheworld, at #Generationequality Sexual exploitation is rife in many countries. Commercial sexual exploitation of children involves the sexual exploitation of a child, such as the prostitution of children, child pornography and even sale of children. Soroptimists through their projects create awareness of such a barbaric activity. #Orangetheworld, at #Generationequality
