ZONTA ROSE DAY
Each year on 8 March, we celebrate Zonta Rose Day in conjunction with International Women's Day. In many countries around the world, International Women’s Day is a day when women are recognized for their achievements regardless of their differences.
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
The United Nations Member States adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 because they understood that it would not be possible to build a peaceful world if steps were not taken to achieve economic and social development for all people everywhere, and ensure that their rights were protected. The Sustainable Goals cover a broad range of issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment and social justice.
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD
On December 19, 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare 11 October as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

ZONTA’S 100TH BIRTHDAY
November 8, 2019
Happy 100th Birthday to Zonta International!
Nearly 100 years ago, founding member Marian de Forest dreamed of an organization that would bring together women in executive positions to help them reach their rightful places in the professions that rarely had women leaders. On 8 November 1919, delegates from the first Zonta clubs met to form the "Confederation of Zonta Clubs."
Since the creation of Zonta International, our members have dedicated the last century to empowering women, both in and outside of Zonta.
