Orange Day/Stories that Make Us Think

The Institute for Youth Development KULT commemorated June 25, 2016 – Orange Day – Day of Fighting Against Violence over Women and Girls with the short film “S(HE)?”.

The promotion of the film in March was performed in the Cinema City Multiplex and the story about the women in our society as brave heroines of everyday life was thus successfully completed.

The film crew followed women through their daily lives and they told their story.

“This film was made as a token of gratitude to all women, in order to demonstrate that we endlessly appreciate what they are doing. We decided to dedicate the Orange Day to women who dedicated their lives to fighting, who use their hands, words and deeds to break down the walls of prejudice and create better lives for themselves, those around them, for us and the future generations” – stated Mirela Ajanovi? from the Institute for Youth Development KULT.

The Orange Day is commemorated on every 25th of the month as the day of fighting against violence over women and girls, but it is necessary to emphasize that physical violence is not the only form of violence over women and is not the only manner for women to feel neglected, betrayed and disempowered. According to the data of the Agency for Gender Equality, 52.8% of women suffered some form of violence. Even though there are certain statistical data, it is difficult to refer to concrete numbers.

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.
