The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (25 November – 10 December), and the focus of our Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign activities, are now a little less than two months away. With COVID-19 and the challenges it presents for in-person events and activities, I know many of our clubs may need to make adjustments to their Zonta Says NO plans this year. With these challenges in mind, we have put together a new Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women Toolkit. The toolkit includes a wide variety of actions you can take to address gender-based violence in-person or virtually, as well as many examples from Zonta clubs that you may wish to adopt and adapt for your club or district.
The Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women Toolkit is now available on the Zonta International website under My Zonta / Advocacy Tools. Here is a direct link to the toolkit: https:
If you have any questions, please let us know, and thank you in advance for your support in making our Zonta Says NO campaign a success again this year.
