"ZONTA says NO" to Violence
Our ongoing advocacy impact is built around the advocacy campaign “Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women.” Launched in 2012, the campaign has raised awareness of the global pandemic of women’s rights violations and has united Zonta clubs worldwide in conducting impactful advocacy actions to fight violence against women and gender inequality.
All Zonta clubs and districts are encouraged to take advocacy actions throughout the year:
To promote the human rights of women
To promote Sustainable Development Goal No. 5 “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”
To end violence against women and girls
During the 16 Days of Activism, 25 November-10 December, all Zonta clubs and districts are encouraged to take part in the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign and to take local, national and international actions to influence the making and implementation of laws, as well as changing gender-based attitudes and behaviors to end violence against women.
