 The purpose of the InterClub has always been to assist Women’s Clubs and Organisations in networking to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment.  In 2001 it was felt that there should be a collaborative event in the celebration of women …thus the IWD Tea Party was born.


Thirteen members of Soroptimist International represented their club at the tea.
