We stand for women’s rights. We advocate for equality, education and an end to child marriage and gender-based violence. Through cooperation and community empowerment we can make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.


We have a dedicated history of supporting women in education.  Investing in the education of women and girls yields high returns, such as breaking cycles of poverty, fostering economic growth and empowering women both in the home and workplace.


We are passionate about providing life-changing opportunities for women and girls through service.  Our members donate their time and talents to a variety of initiatives throughout the Joliet area in efforts to empower and improve the lives of others.
