Zonta Club of Speyer-Germersheim celebrates Zonta’s centennial with historical walking tour

The Zonta Club of Speyer-Germersheim in Germany, District 28, organized a walking tour through Speyer, one of the oldest cities on the Rhine River, to celebrate Zonta’s 100th anniversary.

The tour led by a local female guide specializing in women’s history raised awareness of the often-forgotten contributions of women to historical events as well as social and political developments. Speyer served as a good example of the fact that history written by those in power tends to neglect the ideas and activities of women.

The Zontians enjoyed an informative evening to honor Zonta, celebrating how long women have come in the past 100 years, and thinking about what still needs to be done.
