We Painted Sea Orange

Refugee Support Center (MUDEM-RSC) and UNWOMEN organized an event “Make Yourself Heard About Violence Against Women” event in Izmir within the scope of “16 Days of Activism Campaign Against Gender-Based Violence”. In the event where participants from different cultures came together under the slogan of “Be a Firefly, Enlighten the Darkness”, women sail to the sea on a ferry and whistled along the Kordon and made a noise against the violence against women with orange scarves and hats.
