Words by Nadia Chapman

Simone O’Brien, a domestic violence survivor and activist will be the guest speaker at the Zonta Club of Redcliffe’s Orange Activism Breakfast on November 21.

The event at The Komo starts the international 16 days of activism and hopes to kickstart advocacy to end violence against women and girls.

Tickets are selling fast, with reservations due by Friday, November 17.

The Zonta Club of Redcliffe was founded 43 years ago and aims to empower women worldwide through service and advocacy to end domestic and family violence.

Simone tells an inspiring and important story about resilience after being hospitalised at the hands of a perpetrator known to her in 2012.

The horrific domestic violence attack left Simone without her sense of smell or sight in her right eye. 

Through her determination and the support of family and friends, Simone recovered and decided to use this same courage to raise awareness and give strength to victims to get out of violent relationships.

As an international speaker, Simone will deliver a powerful message during the Zonta Club of Redcliffe breakfast; known to relay her journey of survival and advocacy in a raw and engaging style.
