Women & Girls

Women at their best, working to help
other women to be their best!

So why does Soroptimist focus on Women and Girls?

Education is the key to gender equality, which has yet to be achieved anywhere in the world.
Our years of experience working with women and girls has taught us that education is the key to unlocking economic empowerment of the world’s women and girls. When women and girls are educated, they have opportunity, choice and power to make healthy decisions for themselves and their families.
  • When Women Learn, families live healthier lives,
  • When Girls Go to School, they are more likely to get paying jobs and their financial contributions to their families—and their nations—increase,
  • When Girls Have Educated Moms they are more likely to be enrolled in school and to reach higher levels of education.
  • When Women are Educated, their countries are more likely to have greater economic growth.
