American Association of University Women

Since 1881, AAUW (formerly known as the American Association of University Women) has been the nation's leading voice promoting education and equity for women and girls. We have a nationwide network of nearly 100,000 members, 1,000 branches, and 500 college/university institution partners. AAUW Rally at the US Capitol.

For more than 127 years, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political. Our commitment to our mission is reflected in all aspects of our work:

  • Public Policy Advocacy
  • Community Programs
  • Voter Education Campaign
  • Leadership Development
  • Conventions and Conferences
  • International Connections

AAUW's voice has long influenced legislative debate on critical social issues such as education, sex discrimination, civil rights, reproductive choice, affirmative action, Title IX, welfare reform, vocational education, pay equity, family and medical leave, and health care reform.
