November 2017: From our National AAUW leaders: It was 136 years ago when 17 trailblazing women came together and formed what is today AAUW. Their mission to empower women and girls lives on, embodied by a powerful network of dedicated and passionate members, supporters, and volunteers. AAUW continues to impact the lives of countless women and girls because of you and more than 170,000 others who have committed to making our mission a reality.

Your dedication to the purpose that brought our founders together is what makes the 2,000 AAUW communities and campuses across the country strong. You champion Title IX and safe campuses. You demand equal pay for equal work. You push for gender equity in STEM fields. You empower the next generation of women leaders.
