Welcome

Since 1881, AAUW has been breaking through educational and economic barriers for women and girls. 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.

Public Policy

Since AAUW’s founding our members and supporters have spoken out about policies important to women and girls. Without their voices, invaluable legislation would have never been passed. In recent years, such legislation included the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
