Zonta Talks

Zonta Talks turn members from readers and viewers to participants. The intention is to engage us all even more in topics relevant to Zonta’s future, which will empower us to further empower other women. Every Zontian can take part. Zonta Talks come in addition to our bi-yearly magazine, The Zontian, the monthly e-newsletters, our website, www.zonta.org, and our presence on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube).
Please note that we will be rotating the start time of Zonta Talks throughout the biennium to encourage global participation and popular topics not chosen for this Zonta Talk can be used at a future time. Thank you to all of those who participate on the calls and continue to use these recordings and documents as resources.

Child Marriage

Worldwide, almost 650 million women alive today were married before their 18th birthday and an estimated 280 million more girls are at risk of becoming brides. If current trends continue, the number of girls and women married as children will reach nearly 1 billion by 2030.

To end this violation of human rights, Zonta International has committed US$2,000,000 to UNICEF USA to support the UNICEF/UNFPA Global Programme to Accelerate Action to End Child Marriage in 12 countries: Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Mozambique, Nepal, Niger, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Yemen and Zambia.

Watch and listen below to learn more about child marriage and Zonta's initiatives to eliminate this harmful practice.
