Media requests for stories
AAUW is happy to connect reporters and policy makers with personal stories that help tell the unique experience of women in the United States.
For more information, to place an interview or speaking request, or for questions about our story bank, contact Amy Becker, AAUW political media manager, at email@example.com or 202.785.7756.
Founded in 1881 and representing more than 170,000 members and supporters from branches all over the country, AAUW has been at the forefront in passing monumental policy that’s important for women, from the Equal Pay Act to Title IX to the Hate Crimes Prevention Act. But as we know, the best way to make change is to show the faces of those affected by sexism. Do you have a story involving unequal pay, the minimum wage, bias in the workplace, or other issues that are unique to women and girls? Share it with us!
By telling your story, you help put a face on the injustices that affect women and girls every day. With your story, you speak for women and girls who may be facing similar issues. In coming forward, you have the opportunity to help change the future for women and girls.
How does it work?
- Submit your story below or by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- After submitting your story (and optional photo), a member of our staff may contact you to learn more about your situation and to ensure that AAUW understands your story in detail.
- AAUW will match participants with opportunities to share their stories publicly. Opportunities may include requests from the media, policy makers, and advocates; use in our online efforts; and use in our policy briefs.
- We will always ask your permission before we release any contact information or use your story, and you can always opt out of any opportunity.
