Our Vision

Zonta International envisions a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.

In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men.

In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.

Our Causes

Zonta International and our members work at the international, national and local levels to realize our vision of a world in which women's rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential, where women have access to all resources and are represented in decision-making positions on an equal basis with men, and where no woman lives in fear of violence. 

Advocating for Gender Equality

We advocate for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls in all aspects of life. 

Ending Gender-Based Violence

We raise awareness of the global pandemic of women’s rights violations and unite our members worldwide to fight violence against women and girls.


Ending Child Marriage
We work with partners to prevent child marriage in some of the highest prevalence countries while our Zonta clubs and members advocate for an end to this human rights violation in their own countries.
 

Expanding Access to Education

We support women’s education through our own scholarships, fellowships and awards and through our international service projects, which very often include education of women and girls as key strategies.
