“Building a Better World for Women and Girls”

Debbie Field

Message from our President

Zonta is an international organization dedicated to “Build a Better World for Women and Girls” by empowering women through service and advocacy. It isn’t always easy – but it is always rewarding. We find joy in doing this in a supportive community of like-minded professionals from diverse countries and cultures.

Currently our club focus is on women’s mental health. We know that in our local community there  are not  enough resources  for women who  have mental health concerns. We also know that poverty, violence, homelessness and addiction often go hand in hand with mental health challenges, and so, our fundraising and advocacy efforts partner with community based agencies who tackle these issues and provide relief in these areas. 

I hope you will join us as a member, or a volunteer, to bring change to our community near and far, and give women power and strength.

Debbie Field

President, Zonta Club of Hamilton 1

Our Mission

Zonta International is a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.

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.

Global Initiatives

We will End Child Marriage

Almost 650 million women alive today were married before turning 18.

We say NO to Violence Against Women and Girls

About 2 in 3 women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner.

We will Close the Gender Gap in education

Every additional year of primary school increases girls’ eventual wages by 10 – 20 percent.
