No to Domestic Violence.
Yes to Respect
After a successful march in Adelaide, when hundreds of Rotarians marched along King William St to show the public that Rotary says No to Domestic Violence, the Rotary Club of Barossa Valley organised a group to march in the Tanunda Christmas Parade.

During the march, there was much support for our stand against Domestic Violence.
President Sandie said " There was a great response from all ages, with lots of clapping and comments of 'Good on you' as we walked past

The statistics are sobering: Intimate partner violence is the most common type of violence against women, affecting 30 per cent of women worldwide, according to a 2013 World Health Organization report. As many as 38 per cent of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner.

In New Zealand, a dozen women are killed by their partners or ex-partners each year, and in Australia, a woman is killed, on average, about every week.

Recognizing the desperate need for domestic violence services in their communities, Rotary clubs throughout Australia and New Zealand are fundraising and partnering with charities to raise awareness and work on prevention and victim support.
