Say no to violence against women says Zonta


23 MF-Zontaorange-628The Zonta Club of Mangawhai envisions a world where no woman lives in fear of violence.

To highlight this message the women of the local club have knit-bombed the prominent oak tree outside the art gallery in orange, the colour of the International Zonta Says No campaign.

The tree will remain wrapped for the 16 days of activism which started on November 25, coinciding with White Ribbon Day.

Violence against women is a worldwide pandemic – it crosses every social and economic class, every religion, race and ethnicity.

At least one out of every three women worldwide has experienced violence during their lifetime.

Zonta International strives to reduce the incidence of violence through service and advocacy, locally and internationally.

Pictured under the knit-bombed tree are (from left) Zonta members Jan Fisher, Leslie Porteous, Helen White, Dianne Redfern and Kay Hurley.
