Zonta Club of Adelaide Hills Inc spreads awareness of gender-based violence in local businesses and holds a vigil of remembrance

For the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, members of the Zonta Club of Adelaide Hills Inc, Australia, canvassed local businesses. As a result, 18 businesses and two state politicians’ offices displayed a total of 37 orange ladies with accompanying flyers and countertop information sheets on the 16 Days of Activism.

A boutique effectively dressed their window in all orange items for the 16 days and a bakery made orange iced donuts and displayed the countertop information appropriately. In addition, two orange ladies were displayed in the local Federal Member of Parliament’s office in Canberra. One particular orange lady that drew attention was displayed atop a crane at an Equipment Hire facility. All the orange ladies were modeled on actual people and used with their permission.

The club also hosted a vigil at the iconic Windy Point, overlooking the city of Adelaide, to remember women who have lost their lives in domestic violence.
