The world is mobilizing for women's rights on day two of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence campaign, which began on Nov. 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and goes through Dec. 10, International Human Rights Day.

Say NO - UNiTE's global campaign to end violence against women has already garnered quite a following. By the organization's count, 5,621,051 online actions have already been taken toward bringing awareness to gender violence. 

 

Many of those actions have been shared on Twitter, where Say NO is asking participants to tweet their activities and experiences under the hashtags "#orangeurworld," for this year's theme color, and "#16days."
