We are only days from our 2021 ” Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women” campaign extending Nov 25th – Dec 10th. We would like to start getting helpful information out. Please share this post. #zontasaysno#16daysofactivism
For more than 100 years, Zonta International has contributed to help achieve a world free of violence against women and girls through service and advocacy.
Violence against women and girls is one of the most pervasive human rights violations and a global epidemic. It knows no national or cultural barriers; it takes place at home, in the workplace and in open spaces, and affects millions of women and girls in peacetime and conflict. It includes psychological, physical and sexual violence, and harmful practices such as rape, female genital cutting, child marriage and human trafficking. Violence against women and girls threatens countries, inhibits economic progress, and prevents women from contributing to their community and creating better lives for themselves and their families
