What is AAUW?

Since its first meeting in 1881,AAUW (formerly known as the American Association of
University Women) has been a catalyst for change.

When more than a century ago a
Harvard physician claimed that higher education jeopardized women’s health, AAUW
conducted research that proved he was wrong.

When the number of female college students grew, AAUW funded fellowships to
support them.

When girls and boys were treated differently in school, AAUW research put gender bias on the
national agenda.

When women receive less pay than their male colleagues for the same job, AAUW continues researching, educating, and advocating for equity.
