Join the Zonta Club of Brisbane Breakfast on Friday 3 November 2017 to support White Ribbon and hear from our guest speaker Umesh Chandra (White Ribbon Ambassador).
History of White Ribbon -
Often it takes a tragedy to seek a remedy. Such was the genesis of White Ribbon.
In 1989, on the afternoon of December 6, a student at the University of Montreal massacred 14 of his fellow female students. His actions traumatised a nation and brought the issue of violence against women to the forefront of our collective consciousness.
In response, a group of men in Toronto decided to speak out and work to stop men’s violence against women. In 1991 they initiated a male-led movement known as White Ribbon, with an annual awareness-raising event (White Ribbon Day) held between 25 November and 6 December.
It is now an international effort in over 57 countries, of men and boys working to end violence against women.
History of Zonta International -
Zonta International is a leading global organisation of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy
Founded in Buffalo, New York, in 1919, its early members were among the first generation of college-educated women, the first generation of North American women to vote, and a part of the growing, though still comparatively small, legion of women entering the workforce.
Today, Zonta International has some 30,000 members in over 1200 Clubs in 67 countries, and has General Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Consultative Status with UNESCO, UNICEF, UN Women, ILO, Council of Europe and the International Centre for Social Development and Humanitarian Affairs.
Our vision is a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men.
In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.
Our theme is empowering women through service and advocacy.
With such alignment Zonta Club of Brisbane Breakfast looks forward to welcoming you.
