Zonta Club of Taipei II

The Zonta Club of Taipei II co-sponsored a walk in Pingtung, southern Taiwan, on 8 December to advocate gender equality, ending child marriage and the importance of family love and harmony.

Led by club president Diana Cheng (center in red), club members and their families as well as District 31 Governor May Wen (center left), joined the event. The Zonta drum team and flute team performed to kick off the 3-kilometer (1.86-mile) walk, organized by a local biochemical company, which attracted some 3,650 people.

Placards which read “Girls Not Brides,” “Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women” and “Honor and Empower”—the slogan for Zonta’s centennial anniversary—were displayed on the stage.

Club members spread the Zonta message to the crowds and called for more awareness on better protection of women-and-girls’ rights and greater compassion for the plight of child brides and the less fortunate.
