The Zonta Club of London and Savera UK lit up their city in orange to bring awareness to the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence and Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign.
Landmarks included the Liverpool Town Hall, St George’s Hall, World Museum Liverpool, Merseyside Police Headquarters, the Greystone Footbridge in Knowsley and the Mersey Gateway Bridge in Halton.
Dianne Jeans, Advocacy Committee, Zonta Club of London, said: “Zonta International is dedicated to standing up to gender-based violence through its Zonta says NO campaign. During the 2020 UN 16 days of activism Zontians all around the globe will be taking part in events to ‘orange the world’ and shine a light on the hidden pandemic of violence against women. Here in the UK, the Zonta Club of London is encouraging local councils to light landmark structures orange to provide a symbol of hope and support for those that are affected by violence every day. We applaud the actions in Liverpool to highlight this issue.”https://theguideliverpool.com/landmarks-in-liverpool-city-region-landmarks-will-light-up-orange-in-call-to-end-violence-against-women/
