The Zonta Club of Perth Inc, formally chartered in 1972, was the first Zonta club in Western Australia. Club members are drawn from a wide range of occupations including business owners, health professionals, CEOs, lawyers, scientists, teachers, public servants and engineers. They all have one thing in common – a commitment to improving the lives of women and girls around the world.
Zonta International, a global human rights organisation, was formed in 1919. Early Zontians paved the way for women to be educated, take on non-traditional roles and have the same opportunities as men.
As the Zonta Club of Perth celebrates its 50th anniversary, members continue Zonta’s mission, which put simply is:
- Zonta says YES to gender equality
- Zonta says NO to violence against women
- Zonta says NOW to gender equality and climate action
