2021 - 16 Days of Activism
Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women
November 25 – December 10
Zonta Says NO
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.
In 2019, the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign will focus on child marriage, one of the worst obstacles girls are facing globally and a severe human rights violation. Zonta clubs around the world are called upon to create awareness of this harmful practice among their members and the public.
