In the lead up to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, EIGE marks the beginning of the awareness-raising campaign, Orange the World, in by lighting up Europe House in orange.

Violence against women is a serious problem in the European Union today. About 33% of women have experienced physical or sexual violence and this is also the case for Lithuania. The figure reflects just a fraction of the reality since violence against women continues to be under-reported.

Violence against women and girls is not an issue for victims only. By promising to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women, we can bring change.

Join us on 23 November, 17:00, for group photo in Kudirkos Square and a concert given by EIGE’s ‘White Ribbon Ambassador’, Vaidas Baumila.
