About the Walk for Women

The Walk for Women is a worldwide event during the month of March to celebrate Women's History Month and International Women's Day (March 8). Everyone can participate—just get moving and share your #WhyIWalk! Help us spread awareness about the stories, struggles, and strength of women!




At, we are dedicated to ensuring women and girls have the opportunity to reach their full potential, be free from violence, and live their dreams. 

In partnership with Soroptimist volunteers, we empower women and girls through access to education. In the process, we're helping address issues that hold women back, such as discrimination, domestic violence, trafficking, and unplanned pregnancy.



"I was a victim of domestic abuse and became a single mom of three kids. As a result of that and Covid, I also lost my job. But despite those circumstances, I fought to pursue my education. The Live Your Dream Award I received offered hope and prevented me from having to drop out of school. Thank you to everyone who makes these dreams possible!"
