The Mary E. Jenkins 1919 Society

LEAVE A LEGACY OF GENDER EQUALITY

Mary E. Jenkins was a pioneer in every way. In 1903, she became owner and president of the Syracuse Herald, a powerful position in an almost exclusively male industry. Sixteen years later, she helped found one of the nine original Zonta clubs and became the first president of the Confederation of Zonta Clubs.

Ensure Zonta’s future

To honor Mary’s achievements, the Mary E. Jenkins 1919 Society was established for Zontians wishing to leave a legacy gift to ensure Zonta’s future.
