About the initiative
The UN in Indonesia and the National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) are calling on all creatives, activists, and anyone who supports the effort to end violence against women and girls, to take part in the #orangechallenge. This event is part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence (GBV) 2021 campaign.
Share your perspective on gender-based violence (GBV) in Indonesia and the social changes you want to see in our society. You can convey your ideas creatively in a form that best suits your spirit and talent. That could be a short video (maximum 1-minute-long), an artwork (comic, painting, or illustration), a meme (don’t forget to add a pinch of humor to your message), or a song (yes, a song of your own that calls for change!).
Your creative content should highlight one or more of the following themes:
- Changing the social norms that perpetuate and normalize violence against women and girls.
- Stopping catcalling directed at women and girls on the streets.
- Creating a safe workplace or safe campus with strict rules and policies for addressing sexual harassment and abuse.
- Respecting women’s personal life choices and bodily autonomy.
- Stopping online gender-based violence.
- Speaking out to end child marriage.
- Enacting and enforcing anti-sexual harassment laws.
- Showing what consent looks like.
- Encouraging people to be active bystanders.
Share your art on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using the hashtags #orangechallenge, #16days, and #orangetheworld for an opportunity to win a laptop or a mobile phone, plus limited-edition UN merchandise for 10 selected creators!
It is time to act decisively on gender-based violence. Speak your truth. Use your power and resources to #EndGBV now!
