Celebrating 140 Years and Looking Ahead

This past November, AAUW celebrated our 140th anniversary. Over the past 14 decades, AAUW has evolved to become the leading voice in advancing gender equity in education and workplaces everywhere. Through researcheducation and advocacy, we’re committed to ensuring that everyone gets the same opportunity to learn, earn and lead. Our programs aim at moving women    forward—and we fight for policies that support our goals.

Honoring 50 Years of Title IX!

With 37 words, Congress changed the face of education. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

JUNE 23, 2022, 4:30 PM: Join AAUW virtually as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX, highlight AAUW’s role leading up to Title IX’s passage, and reflect on its continued challenges and evolution. The program will include inspiring speakers, and recognize our members and supporters who have made significant contributions to AAUW throughout the past 12 months. REGISTER HERE.
