Zonta International was founded in 1919 as a global organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of women.
Some of our global initiatives include the following:
We will end child marriage.
Almost 650 million women alive today
were married before turning 18.
We say NO to violence against women and girls.
About 2 in 3 women have experienced physical and/or sexual
violence from an intimate partner.
We will close the gender gap in education.
Every additional year of primary school increases girls'eventual
wages by 10-20 percent.
