Date: Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Time: 12 noon (you are welcome to bring your lunch, we will have coffee and tea)
Location: City of Knowledge Convention Center, Bldg. 184, Room 102
As part of the celebration of Orange Day, dedicated to promoting the eradication of violence against women because of their sexual diversity and gender identity, we invite you to participate in the film-forum with the movie: Cheila, una casa pa’ maíta, on Wednesday, June 25th, at the City of Knowledge Convention Center.
Violence against women remains one of the most widespread violations of human rights: up to 7 out of 10 women worldwide experience physical and / or sexual violence at some point in their lives. Ethnic, racial and poverty factors, as well as diversity and sexual identity of women, exacerbate this situation.
The Orange Day will be held on June 25 and will be dedicated to reflect on one of the most invisible types of violence against women: violence because of sexual diversity and gender identity. Join us in this film-forum where members of the United Nations, together with key members of the Panamanian civil society, will discuss this topic.
As part of the campaign of the Secretary General of the United Nations: "UNiTE to end violence against women", we invite you to raise a strong voice against violence. To do this, you just have to wear an orange garment and spread the word on your social networks via @unetelac on Twitter and UNETELAC on Facebook.
This June 25th wear Orange to raise your voice against all forms of violence against women and girls.
