On 25 November, the world turned orange during the global “Orange the world” initiative to commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
In Bulgaria, Zonta clubs in the cities of Sofia, Plovdiv, Stara Zagora, Burgas, Varna, Veliko Tarnovo and Ruse actively participated in various initiatives and all united around the same initiative under the title “In the rhythm of dance and holding hands – ZONTA says NO to violence against women and girls.”
Various dance ensembles and citizens took part in the flash mob to express their protest through the power of Bulgarian folk dance and to declare their categorical “NO to violence against women and girls.”
The clubs called on the attendees of the flash mob and all people in the country of Bulgaria to be active, uncompromising defenders of the right of every woman to live in a better world—a world without violence. Despite the unfavorable weather conditions, the participants showed their commitment to the cause through their talent.
All clubs in District 30 Area 5 will say “NO to violence” through different activities planned within the16 days of the campaign.
The campaign received great media and press coverage within the country.
