Why Women and Girls?
Consider the following:
One in three women have been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in their lifetime
According to a recent report, of the 600,000-800,000 people trafficked across international borders annually, 80 percent are female.
Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours but earn only 10 percent of the world's income, and own less than 1 percent of the world's property.
Of a total 550 million working poor, 330 million (60 percent) are women.
Two-thirds of the 880 million illiterate adults are women.
Of the more than 110 million children not in school, approximately 60 percent are girls.
By age 18, girls have received an average of 4.4 years less education than boys.
An estimated 450 million adult women in developing countries are stunted, a direct result of malnutrition in early life.
Who can be a Soroptimist?
Women who want to help improve the lives of women and girls who are less fortunate or are in need of a helping hand. Women who want to be a part of an organization that not only improves the lives of women and girls in their local communities but around the world. Women who want to be a part of something bigger.
