The Zonta Club of Rotorua and their orange Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women dolls, joined with hundreds of community members to celebrate White Ribbon Whanau Day on Sunday the 29th of November.
The Club presented one of their dolls to the Rotorua mayor (centre front of photo) who will display the doll in the foyer of the Council building during the 16 Days of Activism. Other dolls will be displayed at the local police station, library, mall and community center. Each doll has a pocket containing free book marks which provide emergency contact numbers for victims of domestic violence and also information about the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women Campaign.
Around 400 people at White Ribbon Whanau Day heard District 16 Governor, Janette Irvine, speak about the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women Campaign. Many more people will see the orange dolls during the 16 days they will be out in the community
