Homelessness Project unites Zonta Clubs

In a first for District 22, a total of 13 SEQ Zonta clubs coordinated by Brisbane Club’s Advocacy chairperson Susan Davies have joined together on a project to combat homelessness in older women. Using their local knowledge each club contributed to a Master Distribution List for The Lady Musgrave Trust’s Handy Guide for Older Women. In August each club will personally distribute the booklets to key organisations designed to reach older women at risk of homelessness.This is part of our over-arching HOWZ-ing initiative seeking to spotlight the lack of options for older Queensland women.

Walking with Lores Bonney

The Lores Bonney River Walk has proved to be a popular addition to Brisbane’s river walks. Back in 2016 Zonta Brisbane’s Advocacy Committee started lobbying Brisbane City Council to commemorate Lores Bonney, Australia’s greatest woman flyer, as part of the works to upgrade Kingsford Smith Drive. Four years later and their efforts are there for all to see with the Lores Bonney River Walk a popular place for all to walk, run and cycle. It also includes beautiful artwork by Judy Watson and names the many women who have lead the way for us over the years. It’s a great addition to Brisbane and testament to Zonta Club of Brisbane’s role as an advocate for women who inspire us. Read more about the River Walk here
