Zonta Club of Calondura City Inc raises community awareness on gender-based violence and issues facing women and girls

The Zonta Club Caloundra City Inc, Australia, chose to use the 16 Days of Activism as a catalyst to raise community awareness of the issues impacting women and girls locally and globally.

The club placed displays of Zonta initiatives and programs in local libraries. The displays were enhanced by showcasing children’s and adult’s books with a related focus.

Facebook posts reflected Zonta International’s and District 22’s projects in addition to local information. A huge success was the ‘orange-themed’ park run. The club’s local park run committee was happy for them to attend the regular Saturday morning event and provide information, in addition to handing out orange iceblocks and lollipops at the end of the run. Significantly, they were joined on the morning by members of the Sunshine Coast Falcons Under 18 rugby league team. The presence of the young athletes echoed the sports club’s commitment to promoting respectful relationships.
