For almost 100 years, Soroptimist International (SI) has advocated for human rights and gender equality, through education and empowerment lthough women and girls make up half of the population they remain consistently discriminated against, and their human rights are often ignored.

Founded in 1921, SI is a global volunteer movement with a network of around 72,000 club members in 123 countries.

At the heart of Soroptimist International’s  dvocacy work is its activity at eight United Nations Centres, in which Representatives ensure that the voices of women and girls around the world are included in international decision making.

On the ground, Soroptimists take  action through project work, awareness raising, and lobbying of governments to support and realise equality for women and girls; to achieve individual and collective potential, realise aspirations, and have an equal voice in communities worldwide.
