2018/2019

 She Persisted has been chosen as the program theme for the coming year. It honors women who have persevered – despite barriers – in their fight for justice, equality, recognition, education and other issues. Throughout the coming year, AAUW Port Townsend will recognize the determination and resolve of women everywhere who are raising their voices, challenging the status quo and fighting for their beliefs. Chelsea Clinton’s new books, She Persisted, and She Persisted Around the World are the catalyst for this year’s theme.
