March, 1997: Exhibition in Honor of Zejtun Women As part of the international Women's Day celebrations (March 8th), the council organized an exhibition to honor the contributions of Zejtun women to the community and to Malta. The exhibition was officially opened by Madame Speaker, Myriam Spiteri Debono. The council, by means of this exhibition, wanted to focus the spotlight on the people of Zejtun, who have always had a strong social conscience, where the local women held active roles in key positons in education, medicine, health services, aviation (AirMalta's first female captain, Ms. Desira, is from Zejtun), law, politics, civic committees, the arts and local organizations.
