Formerly the Soroptimist Making a Difference for Women Award, the
Soroptimist Ruby Award: For Women Helping Women recognizes and honors
the first federation president, Ruby Lee Minar. A ruby is also a deep
red gemstone associated with wisdom, importance, vitality, strength,
vivacity, power and love: all words embodying the strong and
compassionate women who are our award recipients. The Soroptimist
Ruby Award honors women who have worked to improve the lives of women
and girls through their professional and/or volunteer work.
