AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) empowers women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. Our nonpartisan, nonprofit organization has more than 170,000 members and supporters across the United States, as well as 1,000 local branches and 800 college and university partners. Since AAUW’s founding in 1881, our members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.
By joining AAUW, you belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women and girls have a fair chance.
Membership in AAUW is open to any graduate with an associate’s or higher degree from an accredited institution of higher education. Undergraduates enrolled in a regionally accredited two- or four-year institution may become student affiliates.
