Every two years, the Zonta Club of Perth recognises a woman whose vision, commitment to leadership, mentoring, service or advocacy has made a difference to the lives of others. The Woman of Achievement is an unsung hero who has previously been unrecognised but, without whom, others and communities would not have achieved their own success.
