    Educate, Empower, Enable

    In 2012, Soroptimists reported on 3,727 projects to promote women and girls' participation in education and leadership.  Nearly 110,000 women and girls were educated, empowered and enabled.

    SI evidence shows that small scale projects, together, can have huge scale impact improving the lives of women and girls.

    Global Action

In Focus: Violence Against Women & Girls

Violence is one of the primary barriers to women’s equality. 1 in 3 women worldwide will experience gender-violence in her lifetime.  This year’s Impact Report focusses on this worldwide epidemic: how, where and why it occurs.

We also look at solutions – how Soroptimists have used education, empowerment and enabling opportunities to prevent VAWG and support victim/survivors. The state of VAWG across the world is shocking,  but change can, and does happen.
