MERSEY GATEWAY JOINS OTHER LCR LANDMARKS TO LIGHT UP FOR #HUMANRIGHTSDAY

Iconic buildings and landmarks across the Liverpool City Region was  illuminated bright orange again last night [Thursday 10th December], to mark #HumanRightsDay and the end of the United Nations 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.

World Museum Liverpool, Merseyside Police Headquarters, the Greystone Footbridge in Knowsley and the Mersey Gateway Bridge in Halton were lit orange once again, while Everton FC also switched on the lights of Goodison Park between 6pm and 8pm, in solidarity with the campaign to eliminate violence against women across the globe.

A host of Liverpool City Region landmarks marked the start if the annual 16 days of activism on 25th November, lighting orange for the global #OrangeTheWorld campaign, a spectacle organised by Merseyside-based Savera UK, which tackles harmful practices such as ‘honour’-based abuse (HBA), female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage across the UK and Zonta International, a global organisation that stands for women’s rights and advocates for equality, education and an end to child marriage and gender-based violence.

Last year, Zonta International marked the campaign period with its successful #ZONTASAYSNO initiative, which saw London’s Marble Arch lit orange alongside buildings in cities and towns in countries including the United States, Australia and across Europe. This is the first time Zonta International has extended the initiative outside of London in the UK.
