On Saturday, 25 November, the city of Rotterdam in The Netherlands colored the Erasmus bridge orange.

In the presence of Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb and Minister Sigrid Kaag, the Zonta Club of Rotterdam in District 29—together with UN Women NL—asked for awareness to stop violence against women in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and internationally.

Earlier in the afternoon, club members colored the city with yellow roses, as they handed out 500 roses in the main shopping area. They talked to many women, girls and men, and got great support for their action to spread the message to stop violence.
