TO KICK off International Women’s day, Zonta Biloela held a luncheon for local women.   

Zonta Biloela will be turning one soon and club secretary Lacey-Jae O’Halloran said the club would be more goal-oriented this year.   

“We’re in our infancy but Zonta International is an organisation that is over a hundred years old,” she said. 

“Its mission is to empower women with the benefit of improving the community as a whole.” 

She said that since its inception, one of the main priorities had been women’s health. 

“Things like period poverty and access to services; we’re keen to understand the issues that face rural women in particular,” Ms O’Halloran said. 
“We’re interested in understanding domestic violence issues — family issues. 

“We just want to bring to the forefront positive empowering stories of our local women.   

“We also want to take time to reflect on those less fortunate and currently in stages of struggle and we’re here to commit our power to help raise those people up.” 

Pick up a copy of last week’s Callide Dawson Leader to find out how local women will benefit from Biloela Zonta’s 2021 goals.
