Zonta Club of Maryborough Inc. partners with local schools to raise awareness

The Zonta Club of Maryborough, Australia, is partnering with four senior schools (Grades 7-12) for this year’s 16 Days of Activism. Students from Maryborough State High School, Aldridge State High School, St. Mary’s College and Riverside College are displaying the color orange in unique ways to raise awareness of violence against women and girls.

The Maryborough City Hall will be lit up orange, and a Zonta Says NO banner will be displayed on major streets throughout the 16 Days. The club will also be placing ‘orange ladies’ around town as reminders that violence against women is an issue in the local community, but there is hope that with education and support this violence may be recognized and eliminated.
