An annual 16-day campaign to end gender violence was this year very active, picking up momentum as each day passed, according to the leader of the UN's global campaign to end violence against women.

Aldijana Sisic explains that from 25 November—the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December—Human Rights Day, the goal was to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls.

During these 16 days, people around the world were encouraged to wear the colour orange to show their support and involvement.

Stephanie Coutrix spoke with Ms Sisic and first asked her to describe the impact of this year's campaign.
