International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and the start of our 10th Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign, which coincides with the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence and runs through 10th December. Past president Meryl gave a comprehensive presentation at the Rotary breakfast and spoke of Zonta’s efforts in this campaign. Locally our club supports services that help victims of violence and advocates for the safety of women in all environments. It is everyone’s responsibility to be an active part of addressing gender inequality in Australia, because women and girls deserve to be treated as equals. Meryl, Janet and Marianne attended the breakfast on behalf of our Warwick Zonta Club.
