Zonta Club of Cheyenne honors victims of violence with Silent Witness silhouettes, march

On 20 November, the Zonta Club of Cheyenne, USA, and members of the community marched from the capitol to the Laramie County Library, where it set up a display of the Silent Witness silhouettes of local women killed by domestic violence.

The display will be available for viewing for about two weeks during the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence. Members of the community are encouraged to visit the representations of victims of domestic violence and also review information about missing and/or murdered indigenous women.

2021 marks the 30th year of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence campaign to raise awareness about violence against women. Following the Silent Witness March, the participants heard the personal story of Mary Billiter, a survivor of domestic violence – a story full of gut-wrenching violence and awe-inspiring strength to bring her to a better place.
