Every Vote Is a Voice

Summer 2016 AAUW Outlook magazine cover women voting

Beyond the cross fire and provocative headlines, the context of the 2016 election can get lost. Read this issue of Outlook for the insight and resources that you won’t find in the 24-hour news cycle. We’re refocusing on the issues, not the party line, to investigate the implications of voter suppression, states stamping out local civil rights laws, the contentious discourse of this election season, and addressing everyday sexism.
