Zonta Club HamiltonII/Mac Golden Z Say NO to Violence

4a1c833e-bab9-4233-9527-e54b11e55a82On 26 November, the Zonta Club of Hamilton II joined with the McMaster Golden Z Club to run an advocacy event on the McMaster campus. From 12:00 noon until 3:00 p.m., the clubs had the Zonta Says NO to Violence against Women banner and the Golden Z banner on display along with a paper banner that the Mac Golden Z members created to have people sign in support of the elimination of violence against women.

The clubs handed out 300 Zonta Says NO to Violence against Women Ribbons and about 100 Zonta Says NO to Violence against Women bookmarks, announcing: 1. That it was the UN Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women 2. Gender based violence is not a woman’s issue; it is everyone’s issue 3. During their lifetime, 1 in 3 women in the world will experience some form of violence. This includes women in our community. 4. The clubs asked people to take just a few seconds, show their support, and sign the banner.

The clubs gathered approximately 150 signatures on the banner, which the Golden Z Club is going to hang in the Student Centre to continue to raise awareness.
