16 Days of Activism against gender based violence
What colour will you be wearing for Paint Show Tell this year to support our 16 Days of Activism?
25 November marks the beginning of the international 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence which ends 16 December. Owing the success of last year, Safe House will be running its Paint Show Tell campaign again this year, trusting that the campaign will go viral and really put the spotlight on the life-and-death nature of gender based violence.
The idea of the painted nail as a talking point was inspired by the #PolishedMan, read more here.
So how do you take part?
Pick any colour nail polish and paint your left index finger nail. If you usually wear nail varnish then, make sure that nail stands out with a contrasting colour.
Donate R100 to Safe House.
Show it off! (post pictures and make a video!)
Convince your friends (including guys!) to do the same.
When someone asks you about your nail, tell them that you are against gender based violence.
You won’t be alone!
