As a Zonta member, you become part of a network of dedicated women who work together to improve women’s status and situation in the world. The women of Zonta Aarhus I come from very different professional backgrounds, including an astrophysicist, a lawyer, a journalist, a graphic artist, a physiotherapist, a researcher and much more.
Common to all is that we prioritize the network and want to spend time and energy on empowering women and improving their opportunities both locally and internationally. This can happen in many ways, for example:
- Through support for younger women’s education.
- Through support for better integration.
- Help with self-help projects —- and much more.
Internationally, we support a number of important causes, for example:
- Combating violence against women through education and prevention.
