Athlete Mira Rai

As part of the #16DaysOfActivism to take a stand against gender based violence, UNDP Nepal have released a video featuring many personalities as they spread the message about what people at home can do to make the change in their lives and the importance of ending violence against women and girls. November 25 also marked the International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women.

With the theme of #OrangeTheWorld, you can see the speakers with the orange scarf in the video! Speakers in the video range from actress Manisha Koirala, athlete Mira Rai to activist Bhumika Shrestha and the very well-known 1974AD!
