Longwood's College Panhellenic Council recognizes Circle of Sisterhood as our philanthropy. All our founders stood together in a fight against the oppression of women in the mid 1800's. They fought for women's right to go to college. Now nearly 150 years later, with more than 5 million sorority women total, Circle of Sisterhood vows to continue our founder's legacy by standing together to help girls and women go to school and get an education around the world.
Founder, Ginny Carroll was aware that the sorority movement came from oppression. She wanted to do someting to help women across the world get access to an education, but cannot because of their gender. She reached out to a large community of collegiate women she knew could help--sorority women.
As sorority women, despite our different affiliations, we are all passionate about our various philanthropies. Each semester we all work hard hosting events to raise awareness and fundraising for our philanthropies. Going to college and getting an education is a blessing for anyone who goes. Not only does getting a college degree further lives, but for women around the world it has the power to help most women out of poverty and to escape the violence and oppression against women in their nation.
