Events – International Womens Day Breakfast

Join us for our International Women's Day breakfast 8th March

On 8 March, International Women’s Day, Zonta International joins the global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The Zonta community also marks 8 March as Zonta Rose Day, a time to reflect on past achievements and honor the current efforts of individuals working toward gender equity.

“Each year, Zonta members around the world celebrate International Women’s Day and Zonta Rose Day by giving tribute to the people who have most inspired them with gifts to the Zonta Foundation for Women,” Zonta International President Ute Scholz said. “It is because of generous donations such as these that we are able to build a better world for women and girls.”

To celebrate International Women’s Day this year the Zonta Club of Sydney will be holding a breakfast on Wednesday 8th March at the delightful Bonython Cafe. Our guest speaker will be Deirdre Davis, who is passionate about stopping the trafficking of women and girls. Tickets are $50 and include a generous breakfast. Join us from 7am for a 7.30am start.

This year’s International Women’s Day global campaign theme is #EmbraceEquity. According to, truly embracing equity “means to deeply believe, value and seek out difference as a necessary and positive element of life. To embrace equity means to understand the journey required to achieve women’s equality.”

“Zonta International has embraced equity for more than 100 years as a strong advocate of gender equality at the local, national and global levels,” Scholz said.

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2022, it will take another 132 years to close the global gender gap.

“This is much too long! We demand sustainable actions to close this gap sooner,” Scholz said.

Each of Zonta’s international service projects and education programs aim to provide life-changing opportunities for women and girls to achieve gender equity worldwide. Our members also engage at the local and national level in advocacy and awareness efforts focusing on ending gender-based violence, equal pay, closing the gender gap in male-dominated fields and more. On International Women’s Day, the Zonta Club of Sydney invites members of the community to join us in building a better world for women and girls.
