61 Years Working to Make the World a Better Place for Women and Girls

 

The Zonta Club of Northern Valley, NJ, a chapter of Zonta International has been working for 61 years to advance the status of women. We do this through a global network of 30,000 plus members in over 60 countries. Our service is to local women’s organizations such as Center for Hope & Safety, Women’s Rights Information Center and the healing SPACE. Our international programs help women in Liberia, Rwanda, Central America, Samoa and many other places around the world. In some cases, maternal health is the primary consideration. In others, it is helping to reduce violence against women.

 
 
One hundred years ago, a small group of pioneering women came together in Buffalo, New York with a vision to help all women realize greater equality while using their individual and collective expertise in service to their community.    Their vision became Zonta International, an organization that has grown to more than 29,000 members in 63 countries, working together to make gender equality a reality for women and girls worldwide.    8 November 2019 marks Zonta’s centennial anniversary. Join us in our celebrations throughout the centennial anniversary biennium, ending with our 2020 International Convention in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
