The Zonta Club of Warwick Inc, Australia, partnered with the Rosewool Redbacks, a cricket team, to promote the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign on the last day of the 16 Days of Activism.
During its game on Saturday, 10 December, the team wore specially designed orange shirts and helped raised funds to end violence against women.
Captain Tyhe Clarkson told the Warwick Daily News it was a cause the team really wanted to get behind.
“Jacinta Fromm is my boss at work and also the president of the Zonta Club of Warwick, who have just held their 16 Days of Activism for domestic violence,” he said.
“She asked if the Redbacks would like to get involved as she wanted to reach a whole different audience. And we jumped at the chance to be a part of it.”
The Zonta Club of Warwick Inc also worked with Warwick Safe Haven to co-host a walk in support of ending violence against women.
According to Warwick Daily News, the peace march and candle lighting ceremony coincided with the end of Zonta International’s 16 days of activism.
Psychologist Mark Cary addressed the crowd, saying how important it was for men and women to work together to end all forms of violence.
