On #OrangeDay this 25 June, take action to reverse the funding shortfall for initiatives to prevent and end violence against women and girls!

Resources for initiatives to prevent and end violence against women and girls are severely lacking, yet opportunities in the coming months could be pivotal in reversing this trend and ensuring adequate resources in the future. Governments will come together in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from 13-16 July for the Third International Conference on Financing for Development to discuss financing for development priorities under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the new framework for international development which is due to be adopted in September.  This is a critical moment to urge those participating to put gender equality and women’s empowerment at the heart of the Financing for Development discussions and negotiations.

Learn more about available resources and initiatives by downloading the Orange Day Action Plan.

Here’s how you can add your voice to the discussion and help to raise awareness of the need to fund initiatives to prevent and end violence against women and girls:
