Join AAUW and Support Gender Equity

When a woman is empowered, she starts a ripple effect in her community. This is true all over the world. But today’s women and girls still face barriers that keep education, health care, work-life balance, and economic security out of reach.

Since 1881 women and men have joined AAUW to amplify our cutting-edge research, advocacy, philanthropy, and programming to improve the lives of women and girls in their communities and beyond. Together we can lay the pipeline for success, from the classroom to the boardroom and from the statehouse to the White House.

Join today and move forward with us.

The fight for women's equality is waged 365 days a year. Join AAUW and take a hammer to your glass ceiling.
