Zontians take a stand against domestic violence in New Zealand

On Saturday,the 28th of November, around 50 women, children and men donned orange joined the Zonta Club of Whangarei, New Zealand and walked the Hatea loop to make a stand against gender based violence. All part of an international campaign that started in 2012, the “Zonta Says NO to Violence against Women” campaign is a call to action to end violence against women and girls in communities around the world. Nearly 1,200 Zonta Clubs in 67 countries unite to draw public attention to the issue of gender based violence and advocate for solutions to end it.

The photos show the walkers a bit damp in the drizzly rain, a photo of the canopy bridge lit up orange for the week as part of the campaign to stop domestic violence and one of the group halfway round the walk.The walkers could not stop the rain but it did not dampen the spirits in the united effort to stop all domestic violence.
