What it is?
The United Nation Women’s (UN Women) 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.

The global theme for this year is “UNITE! Activism to end violence against women and girls”. UN WOMEN LINK about the campaign

To support this cause, WOW-SL have partnered up with GP Gallery to sponsor a photo contest. Second Life photo enthusiasts, bloggers or sim explorers are welcome to visit ARTSVILLE (in orange hues) and be part of the campaign by taking photos and sharing their experiences from the sim. In this way we can raise awareness of this meaningful cause by coloring our SL and Flickr worlds – ORANGE in 16 days.

Why have this campaign in SL – a virtual world?
Let’s face it! Gender-based abuse also exists virtually, it may be in an unintentional or intentional form. The extent of this violence may not be physical but will always result to short-term or long-term emotional trauma and anxiety to the member victims resulting to a violation of the Community of Standards (not TOS) of SL. Raising awareness in our SL community will give us reminders that one cannot just violate and do things according to their pleasure in-world with the expense of another person/ persons. It is time to at least put light into this issue by supporting us.

The rules of the contest are noted below. The competition will be judged by 4 representatives from the Sponsors.
