ZONTA was organized in November 1919 in Buffalo, New York. Our founder was Marion DeForest, a journalist and playwright. At a time when few women held leadership positions she conceived the idea of a strong network of women. By March of 1919, five women organized to achieve this mission and chartered the first Zonta club in Buffalo, New York. Zonta History
