ZONTA clubs from around the globe are coming together to stand against violence against women.
The Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women annual campaign started yesterday and would run until December 10.
To assist women and girls in Southland to seek help if they were affected by family violence, the Zonta Club of Invercargill would be displaying posters listing phone numbers for various organisations which could help.
Posters would be strategically placed where they could be seen by women, as well as posters with helpline numbers for men who needed support to be free from violence.
For the next week, the Queens Park Gala St fountain would be lit in orange to create awareness of the campaign.
The colour orange was significant because the United Nations Secretary-General’s campaign, UNiTe to End Violence against Women, had chosen the 25th of each month as raise awareness and take action against violence.
