Like Zonta, the International Labour Organization (ILO) was founded in 1919, in the aftermath of World War I. One of its key missions right from the start was the "improvement of women’s right and working condition" and "equal remuneration for work of equal value."
During my recent stay in Taipei I learned that the Zonta Club of Taipei II has a member, Ju-Chiang Lay Shan, who celebrated her hundredth birthday a while ago.
