CAA: Go purple for gender equality
People are being asked to wear purple for gender equality to mark next week’s International Women’s Day.
The campaign, with the hashtag #PressForProgress, calls for society to take a stand against gender-biased inequalities on Thursday.
The Centre Against Abuse said purple was chosen because it stands for justice and dignity.
The charity added: “The wearing of purple on March 8 shows your commitment to #PressForProgress and your stand against gender biased inequalities.
“Purple can be worn as a top or bottom, tie, belt, ribbon or accessories. The item does not have to be solid purple, it can be a colour within a print.
“It is our hope that all of government, every business, church, educational institute, and individual will join CAA in wearing purple on March 8.”
Group photos can be uploaded to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #PressForProgress #CentreAgainstAbuse #Bermuda.
Donations to Centre Against Abuse can be made at HSBC account number 010 284 636 001.
