During the 16 Days of Activism, the Zonta Club of Nanaimo, a member of the Women’s Action Committee, promoted the “clothesline” project. The group partners community groups and includes Status of Women at Vancouver Island University, Student Union, Canadian Federation of University Women, Haven Society, and further advocates for the elimination of violence.
Zontians held a work party to prepare the articles for the “clothesline” that will be hung in a variety of public places: arenas, at hockey games, public roads, bridges and private business locations. Members will be present in the local malls, etc. The Zonta buttons are on display, plus the club’s large banner. The Zonta Club of Nanaimo will also recognize the date of 6 December, the 26th anniversary of the murders of the 14 women at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, Canada.
