AAUW advocates for federal policies that will help all women and families achieve economic security and for a strong system of public education that promotes gender fairness, equity, and diversity. Economic security policies include legislation to close the gender pay gap and to offer families greater work-life balance and health care security. AAUW also advocates for policies that help close the achievement gap in education and provide safe climates for all students. In this downloadable document, AAUW explains our federal priorities for the 114th Congress. This document is intended to provide an overview of AAUW’s work for new members of Congress and for AAUW members to use at conventions and annual meetings.
