Celebrating 100 years of Zonta  

Zonta International, founded in 1919, in Buffalo, New York City, is an international service organization for working women in all professions. It envisions a world in which women have a right to reach their full potential; where no women live in fear of violence or shame.

All four of the Zonta International clubs in Dhaka celebrated 100 years of Zonta at Zonta Centennial Event, on November 23. Zonta celebrated this joyous occasion with chief guest Nurul Majib Mahmud Humayun, Minister of Industries. Rubana Huq, president of BGMEA and Ztn Dilruba Ahmed, regional representative of Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign and a previous board director of Zonta International Foundation, were also present at this occasion as guests of honor. Fashion designer and event planner, Tootli Rahman, was the convener of the event. 

The event began with a speech from each of the distinguished guests, followed by an award giving ceremony. The cultural event, titled ‘A Vintage Affair,’ began with seven Tagore women, played by renowned actors and singers. 

Performances to songs from the past like Jailhouse Rock by Elvis Presley and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper entertained the crowd. There was also a ramp walk by the members. The outfits were inspired by the Zamindari age and the Mughal era.

Zonta’s signature project is “Ending Child Marriage” and say “No To Violence”.
