Benetton helps struggle to eliminate violence against women

Italian fashion brand Benetton has launched an international campaign to aid in the fight to eliminate violence against women, on this International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Orange days

From 25 November until 10 December, UN Women will hold the Orange days, which include events all across the globe to help eliminate violence against women.


Benetton will also launch a campaign on its UNHATE Foundation website to help promote gender equality and women empowerment. It will use the symbolic image of a woman "stoned" by men with flower petals. The company hopes this will bring the issue to the foreground and hopes it will inspire more initiatives to help rid the world of this problem.
