President's Corner
Since 1919, Zonta International has worked worldwide to achieve gender equity and to improve women’s lives. And education has been a focus since the adoption of the Vocational Education for Girls Project, Zonta's first US service program, in 1928.
Women worldwide have been celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March since 1975, to reflect on progress made to achieve gender equality, to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities and to call for sustainable change.
