Beaudesert Zonta Club spreads awareness on White Ribbon Day 2016

  THE Zonta Club of Beaudesert set up a display in town on White Ribbon Day – Friday, November 25 – to help raise awareness of domestic violence.

The display featured children’s and women’s shoes to represent those who have experienced domestic violence, and a Domestic and Family Violence Prevention banner outside Mitre 10, in William Street.

Zonta member Denise Martin said domestic violence was a “hidden problem” that should be addressed.

Ms Martin said there were 68 women who had died from domestic violence in Australia this year. She said many other women were left with injuries and other incidents went unreported. She said White Ribbon Day highlighted the statistics.
