Your Every Question Answered: Advocacy How-to Guides

A view of the Washington Monument from the Jefferson Memorial.

From a young age, we’re taught that most of what we need to know can be found by answering the five W’s (who, what, when, where, and why). But the most important, and often the most elusive, question to answer is the H — the how. That’s why AAUW’s Public Policy and Government Relations Department has compiled a set of resources to guide you in advocating for women and girls through a variety of tactics and actions.

You can use these resources to familiarize yourself with tried-and-true techniques, to explore new ways to make your events a success, or to train new members and leaders who want to get involved in advocacy. Don’t see a resource on here that you think would be helpful? Let us know! We’re always making new resources — all you have to do is ask!
