In the news: Zonta Club of Pontiac-North Oakland recognizes domestic violence and assault victims in a courthouse display

During the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, the Zonta Club of Pontiac-North Oakland, USA, District 15, had a display at the Oakland County Courthouse.

The display included silhouettes of women, which represented the 17 Oakland County residents who died from domestic violence last year.

There were also 42 paper dolls, each representing 100 assaults, for a total of more than 4,200 reported assaults last year.

“This is nothing to be proud of. Domestic Violence is not about love; it is all about power,” Gail Johnson, Zonta Club of Pontiac-North Oakland president, told The Oakland Press.
