"From our humble beginning in October 1921 until today, Soroptimist International (SI) was founded on the principles of human rights, social & economic justice, equality, peace, and international goodwill and to transform the lives of girls and women of all ages through our international partnerships and our global network of members".

Soroptimist International started 2020 filled with excitement and hope, this year we would celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, the 25th anniversary of both the Copenhagen declaration and the Beijing Platform for Action, and the 5th anniversary of the 2030 Agenda (SDGs). In a flash our world changed and during recent days we have observed senseless acts of racism as well as blatant violence against peaceful demonstrators and attacks against the Press, which saddens and disheartens us all. As a global organisation we, Soroptimist International strongly believe in Freedom of Speech and Peaceful Assembly that are fundamental rights in the UN Declaration of Human Rights…”SI President, Sharon Fisher
