International Advocacy

 Zonta International advocated primarily through its General Consultative Status with ECOSOC at the United Nations (UN) and its Participatory Status at the Council of Europe (CoE).  Zonta International has been affiliated with the UN since 1969 and has been represented in the CoE since 1983.  Through these relationships, Zonta used its strong voice to present our priorities and demand focused action when advocating for gender equality and women's human rights worldwide.

 Zonta International, districts, areas and clubs draft letters and send petitions to national governments to initiate or influence hearings and legislation on issues affecting women and girls.

Local Advocacy

Zonta clubs monitor laws and policies and their impact on women, participate in hearings and public meetings with local politicians and administrators and host speakers and panels to raise awareness about issues affection women and the local level.
