Hello Members and Friends of AAUW

We are pleased to welcome your interest in the American Association of University Women. Through our mission, AAUW advances equity for 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 the founding of AAUW in 1881, our members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day.

By joining AAUW we belong to a community that breaks through educational, economic, social and political barriers to advance equal opportunity for all women. Explore these benefits to you and your community.

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a powerful community that breaks through the barriers facing women and families today. Our work — in the classrooms, on college campuses, in courtrooms, and on Capitol Hill — has touched women both individually and collectively, and its impact continues to spread across the country and throughout the world.

You are cordially invited to join the women of Kansas in our journey toward egalitarianism!
