The American Association of University Women—with more than 100,000 members, 1,300 branches, and 550 college/university institution 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. Our commitment to our mission is reflected in all aspects of our work:

    • Public Policy Advocacy
    • Community Programs
    • Voter Education Campaign and Get the Facts E-mail and Fax Network
    • Leadership Development
    • Conventions and Conferences
    • Leadership and Training Institute
    • Women Student Leaders in Washington, D.C.
    • Diversity Initiatives
    • International Connections

The Association’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.
