Today, AAUW has nearly 170,000 members and supporters and a nationwide community that includes 1,000 branches and 800 college and university partners. Together, we provide networking, advocacy, and action that contribute to a more promising future for women and girls.
Support the National Women’s History Museum
Along the National Mall in Washington, you’ll find many different museums. What you won’t find is a museum about women’s history.
The House of Representatives has passed legislation that would begin the process to change that. This bill would establish a commission to follow the recognized process for instituting a national museum.
Tell your senators to support and pass this legislation. This bipartisan bill begins the process of determining how best to honor the generations of women who played a role in shaping our communities and nation.
Tell your senators that women’s contributions deserve to be recognized.
