Empowering Women for 60 Years

One hundred years ago, a small group of pioneering women came together in Buffalo, New York with a vision to help all women realize greater equality while using their individual and collective expertise to serve their community.

In 1960, a small group of women came together in Woodstock, ON to begin Zonta International’s 472nd club. In June 2020, our club celebrated its 60th Anniversary and the dedicated efforts of supporting women and girls locally and globally.
