The Institute for Youth Development KULT will spend Orange Day this month as part of the traditional celebration of the week of gender equality that is dedicated to issues, promotion and advancement of women in all spheres of life and work.
This institute will show a video on domestic violence called ‘Will Anyone Call the Emergency Number?!’ as part of the campaign Orange Day, which encourages the prevention of violence against women and girls, and sends a message of active involvement of all citizens in creating an environment free of violence.
The video is being shown from 27 February to 6 March before each screening in hall 1 in Cinema City.
‘’Orange Day Initiative is global in character implemented by the Youth Network UNiTE in ending violence against women and girls, and led by UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon. KULT is marking this day as part of the traditional marking of the week of gender equality that is dedicated to the issues, promotion and improvement of the position of women in all areas of life and work’’, said project coordinator Nejra Kadić.
