Zonta Club of Oak Brook hosts child marriage awareness workshop

The Zonta Club of Oak Brook, USA, encouraged all their members and visitors to wear orange during their November meeting. While wearing orange, a few members presented a workshop on child marriage and what that means in the state of Illinois and the USA in general.

The Illinois caucus representative was involved in teaching the workshop, and she also serves as the advocacy chair that helps lead equal paydays in Chicago.

The club and its guests signed up to make a difference during the 16 Days of Activism. They noted the types of activity they would do, such as wearing orange and which other groups they belong to, to bring the cause to their attention. Their goal was to increase awareness of the impact of child marriage.
