MY ZONTA | FOUNDATION
Today, we stand with victims as the United Nations marks World Day against Trafficking in Persons. Human trafficking is a global issue known all over the world today, and it is something that we cannot accept as Zontians.

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.
