Zonta Club of Bunbury aims to reduce domestic violence with ‘Choose Respect, Expect Respect’ poster campaign

Leading up to this year’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, the Zonta Club of Bunbury, Australia, invited local schools to participate in the club’s “Choose Respect, Expect Respect” poster competition as a strategy to focus on respect.

Bunbury Zonta President Kerry Kerr said, “By talking about respect and exploring what respect looks like, sounds like and feels like through art, we believe that what is and is not acceptable will reinforce positive behavior and contribute to a positive change for the future,” club president Kerry Kerr said.

She added: “The Zonta Club of Bunbury is proud to support the Australian Government’s Stop it at the Start campaign, and the WA Government’s Path to safety: Western Australia’s strategy to reduce family and domestic violence 2020-2030 to help create a future free from violence for women and children.”

Of the 100 entries received, 16 finalists were invited to attend a presentation with their parents on 3 November. Deputy Mayor Tresslyn Smith was there to congratulate the students and present them with their awards.
