October Awareness Events
International Day of the Girl: Call for Soroptimists to Participate
October 11 is International Day of the Girl. This year, Soroptimists can help bring greater awareness to challenges still facing many girls and the importance of providing education.
Go Purple for Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
Purple Thursday is a national day of action during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Join us on October 21, as we wear purple to show our commitment to helping survivors of domestic violence through our Dream Programs.
True Story: Helping Other Women Surviving Domestic Abuse
Tyra had enough of the mental and emotional abuse from her partner. And enough of not having the money to pursue a college education and a better life for her daughter. With help from Soroptimists, Tyra was able to change her life and now runs a nonprofit for other survivors of domestic violence.
