Rallying for Reproductive Rights

AAUW strongly condemns the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. AAUW believes everyone has the right to make decisions about their own reproductive lives without government interference. Abortion access is vital to women’s ability to control their lives, bodies and futures. Without reproductive freedom, there can be no equity.

Expanding Access to Education

Honoring 50 Years of Title IX

Title IX is a landmark federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in education; it affects everything from admissions and athletics to STEM training and sexual-harassment policies. And AAUW is integral to its history. Join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary of Title IX with some special AAUW events.
