For almost 100 years, Zonta International has contributed to help achieve a world free of violence against women and girls through service and advocacy.

Violence against women and girls is one of the most pervasive human rights violations and a global epidemic. It takes place at home, in the workplace and in open spaces, and affects millions of women and girls in peacetime and conflict. It includes psychological, physical and sexual violence, and harmful practices such as rape, female genital cutting, child marriage and human trafficking.

Violence against women and girls threatens countries, inhibits economic progress, and prevents women from contributing to their community and creating better lives for themselves and their families.

The Zonta Club of Marathon has been working hard to fight violence against women and children, to boost awareness, and to educate the community about violence during this time of year. January is National and Human Trafficking Prevention Month and Zonta says: No to Violence!

The color Orange symbolizes a better future, without violence, for all women and girls.
