we empower women and girls
Among us there is likely someone like you, or someone close to you. We’re women of many ages, backgrounds and careers. The common thread that binds us together is our passion for empowering women and girls.
best for women
Sor-op-ti-mist means “best for women.” We work to help women across Bucks and Montgomery PA counties become their best selves.
celebrating more than 100 years
Soroptimist was formed in 1921 in Oakland, California by 80 women who were inspired to fulfill the needs of their community. Today, there are over 66,000 members belonging to clubs in approximately 120 countries.
Launched in 1972 by 31 Bucks County women, Soroptimist International of Indian Rock has more than doubled in size. It is one of over 1,000 clubs in countries across North America, Latin America and the Pacific Rim that compose Soroptimist International of the Americas, a federation of Soroptimist International.
We are women. We know what it is like to feel the sting of discrimination and the pain of abuse for being female. We come together to break barriers and create a world where women and girls are free to act in their own best self-interest, be educated, and lead full and productive lives.
gathering for good
We gather together each month to plan and carry out the tasks that fund and deliver our cornerstone programs, Live Your Dream Education and Training Awards and Dream It, Be It: Career Support For Girls, and all of our other projects and programs.
