It’s no surprise that violence against women and girls is real but shockingly 1 in 4 women in the UK are affected by violence and in the other parts of the world, this number goes up to 3 in 4 women. It baffles me that this type of behaviour even exists in the current world we all live in and I really wanted to share this post to spread the word with hopes to put a stop to it.
I took part in the Draw A Line campaign with Karen Millen where they donated 30% of all the sales of this gorgeous dress to the charity to help raise as much as possible to put a stop to violence against women and girls. As an independent woman, I also feel compelled to promote this campaign in hopes that all the affected women out there will seek help and put a stop to this horrible violence. The orange colour represents a brighter future without violence and UN Women and their partners helped to light up iconic buildings in orange across the world. In the UK the UN Woman used billboards and landmarks to #drawaline around the country and to add to these orange beacons around the world. The campaign lasted from November 25th to December 10th but we should continue to spread the word.
I love the blogging and fashion, and in general, these are industries dominated by women and as we have a voice no matter how small or big, it’s important to increase the awareness to this pressing matter. I think we should never feel intimidated by men and allow other industries such as media to stereotype us females or create a sexualised portrayal of women. We are making slow progress and I truly hope that 10 years down the line we will become equals to men in all areas of life.
My Orange knitted midi dress in 3/4 length with fitted sleeve and round neck features a frill hem is really flattering and comfortable. I paired with over the knee sock boots and a faux fur jacket. It’s getting colder in London so I have been living in this jacket since it really warm and stylish too. It also gives me a great feeling of satisfaction to wear it as I know important is to increase the awareness around violence against women.
What are your thoughts on the pressing issue of violence against women and girls?
Have a good week ahead!
