A Global Voice for Women
Soroptimist International is a Global Voice for Women working through AWARENESS ADVOCACY and ACTION to EDUCATE, ENABLE and EMPOWER women to promote human rights for all, equality, development and peace. The organisation works together with other non-government organisations (NGOs) and various United Nations agencies to bring about changes to make the world a better place for this and future generations.
The international organisation is comprised of five Federations, each of which has its own administrative and leadership structure. Each Federation has representation on the International Board and takes turns at filling leadership positions and proposing international projects. The international organisation maintains a database of information about the work done by Clubs and Regions globally, allowing it to be an effective Global Voice for Women.
Soroptimist International and each of the Federations maintain a web site:
