“Through the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign, Zonta clubs around the world are uniting to raise their voices to bring awareness to this issue and advocate on behalf of gender-based violence survivors.”
What is the “Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women” campaign?
The Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign was launched in 2012 to raise awareness of Zonta’s efforts to end violence against women and girls at the club, district and international levels. In 2014, the campaign began to move from raising awareness of the different forms of gender-based violence to more impact-oriented advocacy actions.
Since 2015, the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign utilized the Council of Europe’s Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (the Istanbul Convention) as a framework and raised awareness worldwide to this first legally binding instrument to fight violence against women (VAW) and domestic violence.
In 2017, Zonta clubs addressed trafficking in human beings as one of the most widespread human rights violations utilizing another significant Council of Europe (CoE) Convention: The CoE Convention on Actions against Trafficking in Human Beings, a comprehensive, legally binding treaty.
Since the introduction of the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign, Zonta clubs, areas and districts have developed advocacy actions with a focus on preventing violence, protecting victims and prosecuting perpetrators.
Starting in 2018 and continuing this year, 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 to the public. The goal is to achieve local and national government and community commitment to fight child, early and forced marriage.
The Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign is a great opportunity to unite Zontians around the world in one common goal and to promote Zonta’s support for the Global Programme to End Child Marriage.
