Preventing and ending violence against women and girls is a top priority for Zonta International and its nearly 30,000 members in more than 1,200 Zonta clubs around the globe.
Through the Zonta International Strategies to End Violence Against Women (ZISVAW) program, Zonta International has assisted victims of violence and human trafficking around the globe by: raising awareness of, and improving education about, violence against women; promoting and enforcing local laws and policies that protect women and victims of violence; and providing medical, legal, rehabilitation and reintegration services for survivors of violence. Locally, Zonta clubs dedicate time and resources to supporting projects that prevent violence against women and support victims of violence in their communities.
Zonta International joins UN Women in asking members and friends of Zonta around the world to join the global call to make ending violence against women worldwide a top priority.
