The Zonta Club of Basel challenges gender stereotypes with display


The Zonta Club of Basel, Switzerland, started their Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women display 25 November together with two other NGOs in the city of Basel. They focused on the theme of stereotypes and how they can contribute to violence. The club asked people about their roles and what happens when expectations are not met.

The club also distributed coasters to passersby and restaurants with cartoons showing stereotypes with reversed genders. People appreciated the engagement and the importance of raising the awareness of violence against women.
