Education

Education

To fulfill our mission of empowering women worldwide, we must focus on gender equality in education, an essential human right, critical to development for all. For women and girls, education provides the tools and resources to empower them to make decisions about their lives and the future of their families. Educated women can break the cycle of poverty; they can choose when to marry and if and when to have children; they can access quality health care to safeguard themselves and their children; they can educate their own children and ensure greater opportunities for future generations.

Zonta Facts

The name “Zonta” is derived from the Sioux Indian word meaning honest and trustworthy.  Zonta’s emblem is a composite of five Sioux symbols.

The Zonta flower is a yellow rose and March 8th is Zonta Rose Day.  All Zontians worldwide are encouraged to commemorate Zonta Rose Day/International Women’s Day in whatever manner is appropriate in their countries and areas, using the symbol of the yellow rose.

Amelia Earhart was an early member of Zonta and each year we honor her with a special trip or event.
