The Ruby Award honors women who, through their professional or personal efforts, are making extraordinary difference in the lives of women or girls. Honorees are women who have worked to improve the lives of other women or girls. Their work has had a significant impact and also inspires and encourages other women.

The Ruby Award honors Ruby Lee Minor, Soroptimist’s first federation president. Ruby is also a gemstone associated with wisdom, importance, vitality, strength, power and love.

She then became a filmmaker, a breast cancer fighter the author of five books and a blogger at Project Pink and Discovery Health, where her blog is translated into two languages.

In 2008. with the growing fan base stretching from Argentina to Australia, Murray Paige and her film’s director created Project Pink, a nonprofit that brings a message of help and hope to young women with breast cancer around the world.

Rita Durgin, the mother of three children, recently received the club’s Women’s Opportunity Award. A winner must be a single parent and head of household seeking to improve her life with the help of additional education and training.

The award may be used for books, child care, transportation or any other expenses that will help a woman reach her educational goal.
