The Zonta Club of Gladstone, Australia, District 22, is advocating to end violence against women with a powerful display.
The club attached 44 orange wooden cutouts, which represent the 44 women who have been murdered by intimate partners in Australia this year, to a fence in their community.
Robyn Liddell, the club’s advocacy chair, told the Gladstone Observer that the number of women who had died was startling but was slowly improving.
“This time last year the tally was 68 so we are making progress in Australia,” she said. “But one death is still one too many.”
Liddell said the Gladstone club invited people to join members to standtogether to say no to violence against women and bring about change.
