Tokyo Tower is lit up this week in purple as part of a global campaign for the elimination of violence against women. Alternating colors of pink and blue were lit to symbolize the purple ribbon for the anti-domestic violence movement.

A lit tower will help 'cure' the bullying bastards who demean and abuse women? Better to write a letter to Santa...

Nery nice!

"domestic violence"

It's bad enough we have people assaulting and murdering strangers, but when people assault and murder members of their own family...

Next month it will be lit up in super bright white to symbolize the global campaign against wasteful illumination.

How about global campaign against light pollution? Japan is the worst offender for light pollution of any developed nation.

I think this is a great idea. Whenever anybody looks towards the tower, they'll see just how large the problem is and that it involved everybody. Good for you! Over here in the states, we have "Take Back The Night", where folks walk through troubled neighborhoods and downtown.

cool pic, the tower looks awesome lit like that. I think anyone who has been to see the tower has this exact same photo on their camera or cell phone though, lol.

You forgot to ask me what I'd ask Santa for!

Dear Santa, Please bring me boxing gloves, a cute little Glock, and Tae Kwan Do lessons...
