Soroptimist means "best for women" and that's what we strive for - to be an organization of women at their best helping other women to be their best. As a volunteer organization of dedicated business and professional women, we feel uniquely qualified to help women and girls live their dreams.
Throughout history and still to this day, women throughout the world face obstacles solely because of their gender. They disproportionately suffer from poverty and discrimination.
