Featured works range from drawing, painting, photography, and print. Through this exhibit, the Zonta Club of Cincinnati hopes to empower artists from the Greater Cincinnati region to bring awareness to the lived experiences of those seeking a world where no woman lives in fear of violence.

The exhibition is part of the Zonta Club of Cincinnati’s local participation in Zonta International’s “Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women - 16 Days of Activism” campaign. Launched in 2012, the campaign has raised awareness of the global pandemic of women’s rights violations and has united Zonta clubs worldwide in conducting impactful advocacy actions to fight violence against women and gender inequality. Each November, sixteen days are set aside to build awareness and advocate Just Say No to violence against women and girls. Other local activities include:
