Since Zonta was established in 1919, many members have joined us and are contributing actively to our objectives. Today, we are a leading global organization of more than 30,000 members in a diversity of professions in 67 countries worldwide. The main objectives for Zonta are to achieve gender equality and empowerment of women. We believe that a better world can only be a reality when women have access to all resources, and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men, when every woman is able to achieve her full potential. In Zonta, we empower women worldwide through service and advocacy while we develop ourselves.
