In 2019 the Soroptimist International President Sharon Fisher launched her appeal ‘The Road to Equality’. 

All Soroptimists share the dream to be a voice for gender equality, and as we Educate, Empower and Enable women and girls, we can realise a better future for all. The value of any social movement is having everyone moving in the same direction toward common goals. 

We know that education is key to removing barriers for women and girls, and yet often access to education can be negatively affected by gender-based violence, harmful traditional practices, conflict, disaster, climate issues and pandemics like COVID-19.

The President’s Appeal will raise awareness to find and empower women and girls who have been left behind.  The Appeal will raise awareness of human rights challenges that prevent women and girls from reaching their full potential.
