About The Event

Enjoy dinner and an information evening with friends!

Our guest speaker Samra Zafar is an award-winning international speaker, community leader, scholar, author and social entrepreneur. After escaping a decade of abuse as a child bride, Samra graduated as a top student at the  University of Toronto, receiving several prestigious awards and scholarships. She frequently lectures on gender equality at many prestigious universities, including Yale. Her speaking portfolio includes two TEDx talks, as well as engagements with Amnesty International, ME to WE, Women’s Business Network, and many major corporations, associations, and non-profits across North America and beyond. Her 2017  TEDx Talk was named an all-time top 10 talk on gender-based violence.  Samra’s book, A Good Wife, published by HarperCollins Canada, appeared in bookstores across Canada in March 2019, and has been highlighted as a top read by The Washington Post.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to Zonta International service projects.
