The Zonta Club of Jamestown, North Dakota, USA, partnered with nursing students from the University of Jamestown for a powerful display during the 16 Days of Activism.

The display included posters of photos of students, wearing masks for anonymity, who were holding whiteboards upon which they had written comments they have heard about sexual assault. The posters were in a local mall alongside a pull-up banner with statistics about sexual assault and information about Zonta International and its projects. There were also handouts with statistics about sexual assaults in the local area as well as the state of North Dakota.

Zonta members changed out the posters each day of the 16 Days of Activism, giving them the opportunity to talk to people about the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign.
