Zonta Club of Siegen Area illuminated 15 buildings in orange to advocate for ending violence against women

The Zonta Club of Siegen Area turned its city orange to advocate for ending violence against women. With numerous partners from eight cities and communities, the club illuminated 15 buildings in orange—more than ever before.

In Siegen, three buildings that shape the cityscape shone a bright orange: the Apollo Theater, the ‘Kulturhaus Lÿz’ and, on the initiative of the Soroptimist Club Siegen, the tower of the Nikolai Church. The Apollo Theater also hosted an outdoor event, in which the club celebrated a new member.

Two radio stations and local newspaper reported on the club’s Orange the World campaign. WDR-TV reported on the event at the Apollo Theater and also interviewed a young woman who experienced intimate partner violence.
