Beyond Aspirations: Advancing Equity for Women and Girls

Since 1881, AAUW has been breaking down barriers for women in education, in the workplace, and in our communities — locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. Our founders refused to accept the status quo and demanded access for women at every level of our society.

Today, AAUW’s 170,000 valued members and supporters celebrate and reflect on the organization’s rich past and meaningful impact for women and girls.
