Zonta eClub Canada BlogThe members of the Zonta e-Club of Canada1 have a lot to say about gender equality, ending violence against women (VAW), and ensuring that girls and women have access to education and health care. Sometimes we’ll “say” things by raising money or awareness for causes or initiatives. Other times, we’ll “say” things by writing articles and/or sharing resources via Facebook and Twitter. Watch this blog for monthly articles on these topics. From time to time, we’ll also feature articles written by guest bloggers who aren’t members of our e-Club. As a club with members from across the country, we expect this blog to include a wide range of experiences and perspectives. The views expressed by any one individual will not necessarily reflect the views of the Zonta e-Club of Canada1 at large or Zonta International.
