Area 05 and 06 Meeting

140 enthusiastic members of Area 05 and 06 in Flanders attended the joint Area Meeting on Saturday June 10th in New Zebra in Ghent. Three speakers introduced the panel discussion: Joanie Derijke (war journalist), Mia Doornaert (political journalist) and Cathérine Ongenae (journalist and anthropologist). One of our members, Annemie Viaene (Zonta International PR Committee chairman), led the discussion. Mrs. Derijke talked about the terrible situation of women in Muslim countries and her experience as a woman. Mrs. Doornaert pointed out that feminism has a task to come up for women and girls in Muslim countries and also more and more in Europe. She fears that women’s rights in Europe are in decline due to islamisation. Mrs. Ongenae, although she agreed mostly with the two previous speakers... read more »

Car-Rally as a fundraiser for “Zonta says no”- campaign - organized by ZC Oldenburg / Germany

Early Sunday mornings in the middle of the town of Oldenburg are usually quiet. But on the morning of June 16th one freshly washed car after the other showed up on the marketplace. Casually dressed women in sunglasses and trainers appeared from Volkswagens, Mercedes cars and others, not exactly Formula One approved vehicles.

They helped themselves to coffee first, layed out on a small table, where glass jugs had stickers with “Driver One”, “Driver Two” and “Navigator” on them: ready for the day ahead. The Zonta Club Oldenburg held its first car rally! It was quite a show! Not only did Zontians and guests have to answer (very difficult) questions and find remote places in Oldenburg that were not always close by – they even paid to do so!

Starting fees came in as a donation fo...

Standing Ovations against Violence – Zonta Club of Bremen says „NO“

On Sunday, 10 February 2013, the ZONTA Club of Bremen, Germany, organized a fund-raiser soirée with the dance theatre performance „March to a different Drummer“. The club enabled this performance by co-operating with the sophisticated choreographer Christine Witte who worked with 20 kids from the Bremen region. These youngsters live in the most different social and cultural backgrounds. None of them have any dance experience, let alone stage experience.

It is absolutely remarkable how Christine inspires and motivates these teenagers. Within three months of rehearsal they set up a complete stage performance. The young dancers flirt, fight, addict themselves to romance, and show their own special world of teenagers between rebellion and adaption. Their language is the dance – modern...

Area 02 Zonta Club BEAUNE trip to Sri Lanka / Ceylon

Nine Zontians and three Zonta boys were part of the group. A wonderful reception was organized by the teachers and children at the schools.
