Zonta Club of Olympia focuses on ending child marriage for its 16-day awareness campaign


The Zonta Club of Olympia, USA, District 8, spread awareness of child marriage throughout the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

Club members received a sheet with all 16 days worth of talking points so they could share in their everyday life, and the club posted each day on their Facebook page. Their posts received likes and shares from around the world, with 50% more traffic and interaction than usual.

In addition to receiving positive media attention, the club noticed an interest in learning more about Zonta and in building an advocacy focus with their local legislature to end child marriage.
