Zonta Say No to Violence Against Women

Zonta – Christchurch-Canterbury Club launched their #16DaysOfActivism against gender-based violence at Kate Sheppard House. The campaign aims to shine a light on the severity of the issue and – just as importantly – ways that we as a society can work to prevent it. They produced 125 handmade orange hearts to represent the New Zealand women who died as a result of domestic violence from 2009-2019.
At the event, Christchurch Girls’ High School / Te Kura o Hine Waiora students Nawwa Niyaz and Kayla Pringle spoke about the work they’ve done to expose sexual harm occurring amongst Christchurch students, and the group they’ve formed to help combat it Students Against Sexual Harm – SASH
The UN’s #OrangeTheWorld campaign occurs across the globe – with public buildings lit up in orange.
