BA Building Lit as Part of the 16-Day Campaign to Fight Violence against Women

Posted on

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina, through the Women Studies and Social Transformation Program (WSST), and in collaboration with UN Women Egypt (Cairo Office), will light its whole building in orange – a color symbolizing a brighter future with no violence. This celebration is held for the third consecutive year, as part of the 16-day campaign to fight violence against women, following the example of distinguished landmarks around the world. It aims to raise public awareness about women’s issues, and the means that should be adopted to improve their conditions. The event will take place after sunset today, 25 November 2020, and on 10 December 2020, the day the campaign ends.
