Today we recognize the day Amelia Earhart began her trip from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Oakland, California, United States, which made her the first person to fly solo across any part of the Pacific Ocean.

My wife Cindy help me to understand the hoops and obstacles women face in their pursuit of a balance in a career and a home life.

Every woman I have met growing up inspires me to be me . Not one single woman but all cos their story seemed alike but their journey is different which helped shape my reality .knowing that not one person has the answer to what womanhood /girlhood means I was able to strive against all odds to contribute my story and choose my every journey with caution so I can also be an inspiration to the next generation. I can proudly say I am a product of a culture that celebrates sisterhood

‪I am inspired by the Zontians like Marion de Forest who founded Zonta 100 years ago. What courage and determination they must have had to go against the social norm of their time and stand up for their rights.🙋‍♀️

How to pick just one?

The Zonta Club of Cebu 1 has its extensive advocacy on preventing child marriage through awareness information networking with the academe and tri-media. The biennium 2018 to 2020 staged a play on the roots and consequences of child marriage; interactive fora ajd symposium; comics serials and essay writing sessions in the schools. There were poster exhibits on Violence Against Women and Child Marriage; shout out on No to Childhood marriage before some 5000 teachers, students and Zontians where speakers focused on education and value formation as proactive ways to prevent child marriage. The Zonta Club Cebu 1 projects were discussed in Gma7 TV regional; two tv programs - Channels 30 and 53; write-ups in local and national papers; billboards in Cebu's major thoroughfares ; essay writing. As a result, a new Z club for young women leadership will soon be organized; more extensive baranggay or community linkages and many more. All these projects will be strengthened in 2019-2020. Zonta Club of Cebu 1 is second oldest in the Philippines and recently celebrated its 50 years on Nov.8, 2018. ( text from past president Zontian Mila C. Espina, PR chair)

It was recently brought to my attention the child marriage issue here in the US. I’d love to hear of the local advocacy in each State.
