Advocacy

AAUW advocates for gender equity for women and girls. Since AAUW’s founding in 1881, our members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day. AAUW is on the cutting edge of the fight for fair pay and economic security for women and their families through research, education and advocacy. The Morgan Hill branch provides funds each year toward these national AAUW priorities as well as creating local programming to both support local women and girls and raise awareness of these issues.
