SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL IS A GLOBAL VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT


Founded in 1921, Soroptimist International is a global volunteer movement with a network of around 72,000 club members in 121 countries. Advocating for human rights and gender equality, at the heart of Soroptimist International’s advocacy is its work across seven UN Centres, where our UN representatives ensure that the voices of women and girls are heard. Our membership work on grassroots projects that help women and girls achieve their individual and collective potential, realise aspirations and have an equal voice in communities worldwide.

Each Soroptimist club belongs to one of the five SI Federations within Africa, Great Britain & Ireland, Europe, The Americas and South West Pacific. Explore our Global Map

ROAD TO EQUALITY

  • Female Genital Mutilation

    The next stop on the Road to Equality is the topic of FGM - SI upholds a human rights-based approach to policies and programmes aimed at ending harmful traditional practices.

  • Domestic Violence

    1 in 3 women throughout the world (35%) will experience physical and/or sexual violence by their partner during their lifetime. Stop off on the Road to Equality to find out more about Domestic Violence, and the SI's commitment to committed to end all forms of violence which affect women and girls.

  • Older Persons

    Many older women are valuable contributors to their families, their communities, and to the national economy, however, others find themselves in a position of vulnerability. SI calls to denounce the tendency for older women to be 'invisible', not just from policies and programmes, but from society as a whole.

  • Migration

    Women and girls are forced to migrate for the same reasons that men and boys do – poverty, economic inequalities, oppression, conflict, war, disasters and the impact of climate change. However, women and girls face additional factors compelling them to leave their homes, and they face additional challenges along migration routes.

    Child Marriage

    SI and the Road to Equality understands Child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) as a human rights violation that disproportionately affects women and girls globally, preventing many from living their lives free from all forms of violence.

  • Human Trafficking

    As we journey on the Road to Equality, SI works globally to End Human Trafficking, recognising it as a heinous violation of fundamental human rights.
