OUR HISTORY, OUR VISION
Founded in Buffalo, New York, in 1919, its early members were among the first generation of college-educated women, the first generation of North American women to vote, and a part of the growing, though still comparatively small, legion of women
Today, Zonta International has nearly 30,000 members in over 1200 Clubs in 66 countries, and has General Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Consultative Status with UNESCO, UNICEF, UN Women, ILO, Council of Europe and the International Centre for Social Development and Humanitarian Affairs.
Our vision is a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
