AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881. For more than 130 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.
We are leveling the playing field for girls and women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
We support challenges to sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace.
We provide educational and lifelong learning opportunities for women.
We respond to the global development needs of women, helping them contribute to the economic and social development of their countries.
