16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women
November 25 to December 16
Zonta's advocacy campaign "Zonta says NO to Violence Against Women" unites the
Zonta world in the global appeal to all Governments to end violence against
women and girls once and for all.
Violence against women is not a women's issue, but a societal issue. It is often rooted in misinterpretations of history, inadequate laws, culture and religion, but can also be based on social structures and traditional ideas of feminine and masculine identities. Violence against women is most frequently about power and control, and we know its consequences to women's physical, mental and reproductive health.
Sustainable prevention requires an understanding of the root causes and the use of multiple complementary strategies operating on individual, relationship, and the community and society levels, starting early in life during childhood, continuing in the schools and continuing during adulthood.
