• 16 Days of Activism

Salvation Army leaders at International Headquarters are setting the example, wearing orange pins for the duration of the 16 Days of Activism to raise awareness of the need to end gender-based violence.


The Salvation Army stands against gender-based violence.

At International Headquarters, we are observing the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence. Around the world, people will wear orange clothing, ribbons or badges to raise awareness of this social injustice.

Today, we join our voices with the cries of many who call for the elimination of violence against women and girls.

Globally, almost one in three women have been subjected to physical and/or sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. That is 30 per cent of women aged 15 and older.

Committed to gender equity, we believe men and women, girls and boys are created in the image of God and should be valued equally. No one should be discriminated against because of their gender.
