Welcome to Zonta International District 1


From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

This year, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Campaign UNiTE to End Violence against Women invites you to “Orange YOUR Neighborhood.” Take the UNiTE campaign to local streets, shops and businesses, and organize “Orange Events” in your own neighborhoods between 25 November and 10 December 2014.   Reach out to your neighbors, local stores, food-sellers on the corner of your street, gas stations, local cinemas, barbers, schools, libraries and post offices!  Project orange lights and hang orange flags onto local landmarks, tie orange ribbons where you are allowed, and organize local ‘orange marches’ on 25 November to raise awareness about violence against women and discuss solutions that would work for your community.     16 facts to check out:  who.int/violence_injury_prevention/violence/global_campaign/16_days/en/   See more
