Zonta Club of Leer-Ostfriesland turns cities orange to spread awareness of violence against women

In the far north of Germany, Ostfriesland and East Friesland lit up in orange on 25 November, thanks to the efforts of the Zonta Club of Leer-Ostfriesland.

On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, or Orange Day, buildings were lit orange to send out visible signals against sexual violence. More than 30 women in the club are in managerial or independent positions in Emden, Aurich and Leer and helped with the efforts to orange the cities.

The club also made parking discs with information about Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women to be given away for free at local pharmacies, banks and shops in order to draw attention to the issue and promote awareness and education.
