Summary

The Zonta Club of Perth, a women's service club, was founded in 1971. It is part of Zonta International, a world-wide organisation of business and professional women working together to advance the legal, political, economic and professional status of women. Zonta clubs support Zonta International service and award programmes, and also provide support for local community projects by fundraising or active involvement, particularly those dealing with women's issues such as economic self-sufficiency, legal equality, access to education and health, and eradication of violence.

Details

District 23 of Zona International was created in 1989, covering Western Australia, Northern Territory, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania, and divided into four areas. The first conference of District 23 was held in Perth in 1991.

Western Australia forms Area 3 of District 23 and as of 2004 comprised 6 Zonta clubs: Bunbury Area, Dunsborough Area, Peel Region, Perth, Perth Northern Suburbs Area, and Swan Hills.
