Throughout history and up to today, women face obstacles due to their gender, and disproportionately suffer from abuse and discrimination. They suffer abuse from domestic partners, and make up the majority of individuals forced into trafficking. Soroptimists abhor any form of violence against women and girls and are committed to protecting their human dignity. Soroptimist clubs focus on three projects to ensure public awareness and education on violence against women.
- Stop Human Trafficking
- Teen Dating Violence Awareness
- Workplace Domestic Violence Awareness
