Women’s Empowerment Facts – our September meeting was startled to find out…
From Michael Kubec UWF:
“We listened to the stories of a remarkable group of young women who were in equal parts inspiring, impressive, accomplished, and grateful. While the amount we were able to give away in scholarships, $54,800, was the highest ever, even more moving was the frequent comment by the recipients regarding the support of AAUW PT members. They value tremendously the fact that behind the dollar amount is an educated, talented group of women who are rooting for them and who care. That theme was also heard from the many family members in attendance to support the scholars. Every member of AAUW PT can take pride in the accomplishments of this group. As one of our awardees said to me, “You are all awesome!”
AAUW Port Townsend is the largest AAUW branch in the state of Washington.
The branch includes nearly 200 active and involved members living in and around the historic seaport town of Port Townsend, Washington. We have been active advocates for women and education since the branch was founded in 1948.
The Port Townsend Branch of AAUW is committed to making a significant impact on education and equity for all women and girls. We will remove barriers and develop opportunities for all women and girls in East Jefferson County to reach their full potential.
- to support economic opportunities for women and girls;
- to support educational equity for women and girls;
- to advocate equity in public policy;
- to honor women who demonstrate leadership and commitment.
In principle and in practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
