Soroptimists give women a voice

Our statements

Soroptimist International of Europe regularly makes statements on behalf of its 35,000 members on issues of concern to women and girls in the 60 countries our organisation is active in.

On the one hand, our statements seek to raise the concerns of women around Europe, the Middle East and Africa who Soroptimists come into contact with daily. On the other hand, they aim to share with the world the experiences and best practices identified by Soroptimists through their tireless work in improving the lives of women and girls. 

Please feel free to download and distribute our statements widely.
