Commemorating Orange Day through Story of Everyday Heroines

Activists of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, with the support of the American Embassy in BiH, will commemorate Orange Day – day of fighting violence over women and girls through a cinema projection and premiere of the film “S(HE)?” followed by an organized event for all attendants. 

The film will be presented on March 25, 2016, 6 pm, at “Cinema City” Multiplex in Sarajevo. 

The short film “S(HE)?” represents women from our society as brave heroines of everyday life. Namely, during the film and also live during the event, the attendants will have the opportunity to introduce themselves to women who stand against prejudice and successfully conquor all daily challenges with their wit.  

We wish to thank them for being there and making our lives worth living through their struggle. 

“In addition to physical violence, which is mainly being discussed, we should also know that it is important to discuss gender inequality, gender sensitive budgeting, economic dependence of women and other factors that often place them on the social margin. That is why we decided to dedicate this March 25 to women who encounter many problems on a daily basis, but strive to overcome the obstacles and prejudice and find their place in the society” – stated Mirela Ajanovi? from the Institute for Youth Development KULT. 

The Institute for Youth Development KULT, with the support of the American Embassy in Sarajevo, has been conducting the “Orange voices for gender equality” project. One of the aims of the project is to commemorate Orange Day on every 25th of the month by promoting and lobbying for gender equality, commemorating and fighting violence over women and girls and raising public awareness of this problem. 

The UN Secretary General declared the 25th of each month as “Orange Day”, the day of reminding of importance of preventing, stopping and punishing violence over women and girls.
