Our Mission — AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
This 501(c)3 organization — with more than 100,000 members and donors, 1,000 branches, and 500 college and university partners nationwide — advocates education and equity. Since its founding in 1881, members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day: educational, social, economic, and political.
AAUW's voice has long influenced legislative debate on critical social issues such as education, sex discrimination, civil rights, reproductive choice, affirmative action, Title IX, welfare reform, vocational education, pay equity, family and medical leave, and health care reform.
AAUW's Value Promise
— By joining AAUW, we belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance.
