Chartered in 1946, Soroptimist International of Woodland is one of the oldest Soroptimist clubs in Yolo County.  This club is a member of District II of the Sierra Nevada Region within the Soroptimist International of the Americas Federation.

The name Soroptimist was coined from the Latin "soror" meaning "sister", and "optima" meaning "best".  Soroptimist, loosely translated, means “best for women”.  First founded by a group of 80 women in Oakland, California, in 1921, Soroptimist is now an organization of more than 100,000 members, with more than 3,000 clubs in 125 countries and territories around the world.  Every day throughout the world, Soroptimists continue their work to achieve the “best for women” in every sphere of their lives.
