Soroptimist International of Hutchinson

Helping women and girls live their dreams pink

Women at their best, helping other women to be their best

Soroptimist was formed in 1921 in Oakland, California, at a time when women were not permitted to join service organizations. Our name, loosely translated from the Latin, means best for women.

Soroptimist is an international women's organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. Today, we have about 30,000 members and supporters in countries across North America, Latin America and the Pacific Rim. This area is one of five federations that make up Soroptimist International, which has clubs in more than 120 countries throughout the world with almost 95,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories. These women contribute time and financial support to community–based and international projects that benefit women and girls.

Soroptimist International of Hutchinson was chartered April 27, 1947 and meets regularly throughout the year. Our mission is to improve the lives of women and girls in the Hutchinson, Kansas area.
