Zonta International is a global service organisation of executives and professionals working
together to advance the status of women through service and advocacy.
Zontians in District 23 (Northern Territory, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western
Australia) support a range of service projects and awards at the International, District and
Club levels to help women in Australia and overseas.
Our District service projects include
- assembling and distributing birthing kits that provide for a clean and safe birthing
environment for women without access to professional medical care in developing countries
- making and distributing breast care cushions for women (and men) recovering from breast
surgery in Australia.
In addition, we support a number of awards for education and community service including
the Amelia Earhart Fellowships, Jane M Klausman Women in Business Awards and Young
Women in Public Affairs Awards that provide financial assistance to help 'kick' start women's
scientific, business and public policy careers and acknowledge the quiet achievers in the
community. Through Zonta service we can and do make a difference!

"I am a Girl" DVD. Writer and Producer Rebecca Barry said:
There is a group of people in the world today who are more
persecuted than anyone else, but they are not political or
religious activists. They are girls. Being born a girl means you
are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty
and disadvantage than any other group on the planet.
This feature length documentary (M, 92min), reveals what it
means to grow up female in the 21st century. Order from
Hardcopy Entertainment for special Zonta price of $17.
